Mileandmile – Leaving Lucrative Jobs in UK to connect Artisans with technology
A short meeting with the Artisans in far remote areas of Chhattisgarh (a state within India), was sufficient to understand their plight and situation. Unaware of the technology, these Artisans are forgotten and left out in the dark. We decided to give these Artisans and Artists a platform where their creativity and capability can be showcased. With this intention, I and Arunendra Singh co-founded first of its kind PLATFORM in the world, named appropriately - mileandmile.
Unique and new ideas are normally difficult to start with. The same was true here also as finding talented Artisans and Artists from this unorganised sector was the most challenging task. Another challenge was to connect them with the technology. Challenges arise at every stage, but we have to keep finding solution.
