About Eastend Women and Child Dev. Org.
Eastend women and child Dev.org. was founded in the year 2006 by a small cluster of women folk scattered across villages in different districts of Manipur. This organisation provides raw materials, which are found abundantly in the wetlands of Manipur. Earlier, these women would make mats for marriage ceremonies with the materials they got. Due to the lack of a market/ demand for such products, their income was very meagre.
It was then that the organisation came forward to help them find a market and also helped them design a new range of products such as bags , cushions of different colours. The women in the organization are also into black stone pottery which is a traditional craft of Manipur known as ‘longpi.’
