A Cultural Landscape of Hampi-Anegundi@1.Shanthiroad

Happy Hands Foundation is committed towards the revival of traditional/folk arts and crafts, empowering rural artisans, and building potential in women and young people to lead community development activities and craft entrepreneurship
In the fast-paced, globalised world today, the value of handmade products has been declining steadily. With over 200 crafts endangered, there’s a need for enhancing and developing perception of crafts amidst masses, in a more specialised way. The stories represented by the various communities and tribes need to be retold in today’s time, where a global culture is replacing the tradition we have held for thousands of years - a gift from our ancestors, and an important part of India’s cultural history.
