Esprit Creations family is dedicated to supporting and sustaining education and care projects.
I travel regularly to India where I sit together with my artisans to complete my designs. My husband, Subhas, is originally from there, so working together with family and old friends enables us to keep our products fairly traded and fairly priced. Through the years we’ve helped our suppliers grow their business. Together we share in each other’s success.
Through Esprit Creations, two young girls are receiving a full scholarship to complete their education and work skills. We also are involved in supporting other projects that the school offers to the poor like the distribution of free food, amenities, and job opportunities.
Our daughters, Ganga and Jamuna, regularly volunteer at the village school and animal shelter whenever they visit. Just last month they launched their own plan to offer educational and work opportunities to a struggling family whose father had passed away. The mother, Meera, is a seamstress living in one room with her son and daughter. My girls arranged for the young girl to attend the Sandipani Muni School with full scholarship to graduate.
They also engaged Meera in a productive work project. They bought a large amount of beautiful block printed cotton material that they designed for their own fashion clothes business, GanJam Tribe, and engaged Meera in sewing cute, simple cotton bags with their own GanJam Tribe label attached. They paid Meera for her sewing work, and as the bags sell she will receive a portion of the profits. The girls plan to advertise the bags for $3.00 each. 100% of the profits will be divided between the family, the school, and their favorite animal shelter from the same village. Our family’s mission is to give our best to the world.
