"Speaking to my daugthers, I told them we had to do something for the children to help them have a future. And that meant giving them access to education. In 2008, they suggesterd starting the Sakula project, which is reality nowadays, thanks to our customers and partners. Every purchase of our products contributes its grain of sand to help these children build a better future for themselves."
Lorena Canals - Founder & Designer
The one thing about our rugs is that they stand for solidarity. Touched by seeing children whose future gets imposed by their family's economic circumstances, designer Lorena Canals decided to offer her social support granting them access to education. And so the Sakûla Project came to be, a nursery in the north of India so that children on the street can receive food and education.
A NURSERY THAT TAKES IN +120 CHILDREN
There are currently 120 children attending the school and counting. Their teachers are in direct contact with us to suggest continuous improvements—from new textbooks to new backpacks or renovations to the school.
