Hope For Women India – Our Team

6 Apr

Currently we work with 23 women that create our greeting cards. They are located in four different regions. But Hope For Women’s operations in India extend beyond our partnerships with our women artisans – we also have a great management staff . Our central office is in Dehra Dun (see posting below) and it is there that we have our crack team who is in charge of managing all of our operations. This includes purchasing all of our paper and supplies, overseeing our flower inventory and storage facility, researching and developing new products, sourcing and managing all of our product printing requirements, and overseeing quality control on every greeting card that is produced. They do much more too! So let’s meet the team:

SAJI – Saji is one of my oldest and dearest friends – our relationship goes back over 14 years. He was my roommate during the time I lived in India and I consider him “my brother from another mother”! Saji oversees all aspects of Hope For Women India and is amazing at what he does. He is originally from the state of Kerela in south India, and while staying at his home with his wonderful wife Malini and two great kids I was treated to fabulous south Indian home cooked meals – another benefit of working in India!

VIDHYA (on left)- Vidhya joined us 6 months ago and is in charge of leading trainings for women interested in working with Hope For Women, as well as supervising greeting card production in Dehra Dun. She is an excellent designer who has flourished in her role as manager.

ROOPA (on right)After seeing her sister Poonam support herself as a Hope For Women artisan, Roopa joined us 3 months ago as quality control supervisor. Known by the women as “Eagle Eye”, all cards and packaging must pass Roopa’s approval before leaving India.

Increased demand for our product has allowed us to offer Vidhya and Roopa full-time jobs and we are thrilled at how they are responding to the opportunity. We are lucky to have such a great team!
