The Spinning Program

To create job opportunities in the remote areas higher up in the Himalayan foothills, ANKURI built rooms to house 20 spinning looms. Trainers were supplied by the State Government and 40 women were trained in hand spinning of yarn.
Unfortunately, in 2013, the centre was very badly damaged in the rains that lashed Uttrakhand. As such, the spinning program is currently shut down but will be restarted once the resources and funds become available.
