I am a regular buyer of collectibles that are handcrafted by women who are a part of RAHAT. They're doing a great job in providing sustainable jobs to men & women who could barely make the both ends meet. God bless them.
Proud to see that the efforts of RAHAT has gained national recognition. I wish them all the best for their future endeavors!
