The Story Behind Khushi Hands

Khushi Hands began life after a visit to Kolkata in the summer of 2016 organised by Khushi Feet. The team of young people visited the ConneXions Vocational Training Centre – a project where young women from the slums of Kolkata receive training and job opportunities.

On the way home from India, at Kolkata airport, the idea of creating a non-profit making community interest company as a means of promoting the products made by the women was sketched out on the back of an envelope.

Back in the UK, a team of directors, all young adults, came together and Khushi Hands was born.
