List of Partner Organizations
Synergy is committed to women's empowerment via The Typecraft Initiative. Their grant to our initiatives allows us to not only provide livelihood to craftswomen, but also enables us to impart skill development to these women through our design methodology workshops that emphasise independent thinking and self-expression as well as the promotion of literacy through the letters the women create.
Thus far, Synergy has supported projects in Kutch such as — the Rabari Latin script typeface with Dhebaria Rabari craftswomen, Soof embroidered Latin script typeface with Meghwad Maaru craftswomen and Mithila Devanagari typeface with artists from the Madhubani district of Bihar.
Mon Ami Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit Trust, registered in India, with a strong focus on social responsibility.

Our projects, primarily focused on sustainable livelihood & vocational skills, environmental sustainability and healthcare, are designed and delivered with utmost transparency, speed and commitment.
