After PM Modi launched the ‘She Inspires Us’ campaign to honour inspiring women, Arifa Jaan from Kashmir took over the Prime Minister’s accounts to share her life story with everyone. Arifa is an artisan from Kashmir, who worked extensively to revive Namda craft.
She shared about her first business activity, which was participating in an exhibition of handmade items in New Delhi. She said the exhibit attracted a good clientele and a turnover.
Thanking PM Modi for the ‘She Inspires Us’ campaign, Arifa says that the gesture has boosted her morale and it'll help her to work harder for the betterment of craft as well as the artisans all over Kashmir.
I always dreamt of reviving the traditional crafts of Kashmir because this is a means to empower local women.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
I saw the condition of women artisans and so I began working to revise Namda craft.
