A great deal of women in India are given little to no value in their community as they are raised in contemptuous homes. As they grow up they are alive, but not truly living; plagued with feelings of worthlessness and lacking the confidence to succeed.
Vikhuli Bogi saw this problem occurring in communities throughout her home country of India, which led her to embark on a mission to help bring dignity and life to Indian women in distress, and surely Juvi is born.
Juvi means beautiful. Juvi exists to encourage, empower and equip underprivileged women in India, with valuable life skills and the confidence to succeed and become self-sufficient.
Our products bring beauty to your wardrobe and life to underprivileged women. All products have been created fair trade and bring employment to women in distress. Your purchase both creates jobs for underprivileged women, and also helps to fund lessons from stitching and jewelry-making to basic computer and English skills.
Born out of a deep passion to make a difference in the lives of these young women and to embark on a mission to help bring dignity and life to Indian women in distress. Juvi values social standards for the marginalized and fair trade.
Participants at Juvi come to live, eat, and learn under one roof. For six months they are mentored in tailoring, stitching, jewelry-making, basic computer skills, and English skills.
