We are a social enterprise in New Delhi which up-cycles waste fabric generated from apparel scraps to create handcrafted decorations by Afghan woman refugees in India. Our products are eco-friendly, support sustainable incomes that help in building communities of artisans.

Problem

Refugees often live in ‘hotspots’ where the effects of climate change and conflict coalesce. In these contexts, the impacts of a warming planet can both be the cause of displacement and make living conditions of those already displaced more difficult by exacerbating issues like water shortage and food scarcity.

Solution

With the motto “A Stitch Against Waste. A Stitch For Freedom.”, Silaiwali’s handmade doll collection addresses some of the world’s most pressing issues – waste from the textile industry and the livelihood of the displaced individuals. As a social enterprise based in New Delhi, India, Silaiwali takes production waste from the city’s garment factories as raw materials and employs Afghan refugee women to hand sew each character together with skilful needlework techniques including hand embroidery and fine finishing.

Iris Strill and Bishwadeep Moitra had worked with women refugees and rural Indian craftswomen before. They were taken aback by the amount of cotton fabrics being thrown away as waste from garment factories. The creation of Silaiwali is, therefore, to help ensure fair employment for women from different walks of life in India and find a new life for the waste materials that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

The Problem
Deforestation is a global phenomenon caused by a variety of factors. These factors range from large-scale slash and burn practices to unsustainable agriculture to daily community forest destruction.

The regions most impacted by deforestation are highly poverty-stricken and underdeveloped areas. With few options to support their families, often members of impoverished communities are forced to destroy their local environment to survive, such as cutting down trees for construction, fuel, heat, and agricultural purposes. While this solves a short-term problem, long-term consequences arise when forests are cut down and not restored. The impact of deforestation is dramatic because it causes severe flooding, erosion, and desertification. The long-term effects of deforestation lead to even worse environmental devastation.

The Solution
There are two key elements to successful reforestation. The first element is that reforestation must present a benefit to the local population. Due to the unsustainable relationship between the land and people, communities suffering from deforestation are often the same as those living in extreme poverty. It is essential to be committed to and work alongside local villages and communities to achieve a successful and longstanding reforestation effort. Eden Reforestation Projects utilizes its Employ to Plant methodology to benefit members in the local communities where we plant. Through steady employment, people living in extreme poverty can begin to afford daily necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, and medicine.

The second critical element rests in funding. Without donors, business partners, and grants, there is little hope for successful and impactful reforestation.
