Young India Project

The Young India Project was founded 1982; tried to develop work guarantee plans for Indian agricultural workers in the federal state of Andhra Pradesh.

This is where we were the last few days, my first time seeing the work started by friends of my parents, a bi-racial Dutch - Indian couple, 30 years ago. After crowded and polluted city life in Bangalore it was such a lovely break to be back to the basics, watching cows being milked for morning breakfast, and taking a dip in the little water tank. The YIP also has a Handwork Center which the kids spent a lot of time in, doing experimental embroidery under the supervision of the girls.

I am excited to say that work has begun on a new wee gallery product which hopefully I can announce when we return to Florida in less than 2 weeks.
