Empowering Women

The training is guided by each individual's inclinations and strengths flameworking, beadmaking, mold making, casting, cold working. When we receive an order, we match the client's requirements with the appropriate trainee and support her in the process of production. In reverse, if a trainee creates an original design that she is willing to produce, we represent her work as best as we can.


This program started initially with the support of the American Association of University Women's Educational Foundation (USA) and the NGO, Hand-in-Hand (India). It is now an integral part of our local business relationships, with several trainees absorbed into ChoChoMa Studios as staff members and studio assistants, while others acting as remote production groups.


The goal is to transform a dormant social group into an economically active group through the harnessing of their creative and resourceful energies, thereby giving the women confident voices and informed opinions in the lives of their children.
