The intervention will involve bringing together women to form collectives, training them in crafts, supporting quality enhancement and, output improvement. The objective of the intervention is to enable women from villages in Rajasthan to - a) come together to work as a collective, b) enhance their skill and quality of output through the collective, and c) sustain themselves as a group. These interventions will be implemented by Urmul Trust, Rajasthan. Under this intervention, Urmul will develop and setup a new value chain that will deal in raw wool (collected from sheep) and yarns produced using the processed wool. Accordingly Urmul will mobilise women who either knows spinning of yarn or have sheep in their households. Urmul will collectivise these women to form Common Interest Groups (CIGs) at the village level and there will one CIG in each of the intervention villages. With regard to capacity development, Urmul will train the CIG members on - a) handling and processing of raw wool, including cleaning, shearing and segregation of raw wool, and b) spinning of raw wool into yarns. Urmul will also provide the CIGs access to improved equipment needed for shearing (battery operated trimmers and shearing equipment) and carding (carding machines) of raw wool as well.
