Thought behind this initiative

Hunnar Gurukul

Cause to Connect Foundation’s concern has been witnessing the huge surge of building activity in the country that is almost entirely using energy intensive industrialized materials like cement and steel and on the other hand seeing the rapid decline of artisanship and use of sustainable materials like stone, earth, thatch, bamboo, etc.

Hunnar Gurukul is an education initiative as well as an entrepreneurship incubation cell. Hunnar Gurukul an artisan school for students who got intuition becoming an artisan, but not successful in formal education aged above16 in carpentry and masonry.

At the end of their yearlong training, we help them find work as artisans. In the absence of such training, they would be relegated to being unskilled migrantclabor.
