Get Involved

SKV seeks Visiting Faculty to teach a range of design, business and management topics. Classes run for two weeks intensive on our residential campus.

We seek experience in action-based as well as practical education, but more importantly we seek individuals ready to learn from artisans, and work in a team to develop a new institution. We want teachers who can say, “I’ve never done this before!”.

Donate

We have an ambitious road ahead- building a new campus, and developing a range of programs for artisans and others. We offer education free to traditional artisan women, and for a token fee to traditional artisan men. This year, in addition to our capital campaign, we have the challenge of raising over $32,000, to operate our programs. Think now about making a tax-deductible gift!

Your generous contribution can help! You can make a difference in the lives of our very creative and courageous students!! Sponsor an Artisan Student and enjoy his/her success for just Rs 70,000 ($ 1,135). Every contribution in affordable increments will count!

Contact kalavidya@somaiya.edu for details. With your support, we will surely take education for artisans forward.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
