Choki seeks to find economic sustainability for the school and its students to preserve traditional art techniques for future generations. Pride is unequal to any other, heart and mind work together to create art that is beautiful beyond measurement and Choki wants to create this invaluable opportunity for the future artists.
CHOKI supports the knowledge and skills that have been passed down through generations with 100% of sales proceeds supporting the CHOKI Women’s Cooperative. Through fairly traded sales of products, the weavers will have sustainable incomes to obtain quality food, sanitation, and education.
Today, Nalanda carries on ancient tradition through 140 orphaned students learning buddhist philosophy, ritual instruments, scriptures, prayer ceremonies, english, and buddhist logic. It is the goal of Choki to meet the needs of the orphans in order to sustain culture and history.
