One of our main focuses here at Darn Good Yarn is to allow these women an equal opportunity for employment so they have the proper resources to provide for their families. Nicole Snow, our CEO, saw a large problem with the unemployment rate in India and knew she wanted to help. According to the India Labor Market the labor rate participation for women is one of the lowest in the world. The female labor force participation (FLFP) rate in India has fallen from 36 percent in 2005-06 to 24 percent in 2015-16, as per the Economic Survey of India 2017-18. A staggering three out of four Indian women are without work. Most women of lower social status still have a very difficult time getting an education, especially in the rural areas, therefore greatly hindering their job opportunities.
As a small business we are doing what we can and every month that Darn Good Yarn grows we are able to hire more and more artisans to make our beautiful yarn! These men and women provide us with beautiful handcrafted items and we could not be more grateful for all the work they do!
