Creating Connections for Social Change (CCSC) is invites you to the annual Holiday Gift Fair at Shanti Mandir.

On this occasion there will be an array of beautiful and unique pieces from India, all hand selected, including: women’s and men’s clothing, shawls, bags, jewelry, home wares, pottery and little pieces to stuff the stockings.

By buying these outstanding products we will be contributing towards Shanti Hastakala, a nonprofit organization that empowers impoverished women in India to be peaceful agents of social change. Through educating and training women in sewing, the delicate creation of handicrafts and management skills, a new opportunity is developed to be self sufficient and independent. This allows them to live a better life of financial security and self confidence. This opportunity also enables these women to support their families, offer their children a higher education and improved healthcare.

The CCSC vision expands the efforts of Shanti Hastakala to include, not only women of poverty in India, but also in America and throughout the world. For the first year, we are also presenting special items from independent American artisans.

This occasion will bring joy to those of us who partake in the festivity of this shopping experience and our family and friends who will receive a unique gift. Furthermore, in each purchase, gift, and treasure that is found, light and hope will be given to people in need.
