HCL Foundation launches ‘My e-Haat’ portal to empower artisans

  • HCL Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of HCL Technologies, on Sunday launched an online portal, ‘My e-Haat’, to empower artisans and strengthen the value chain of the handicraft sector in the country.
  • Currently, more than 30 partners from eight states with over 600 products are listed on the portal, it said adding that more will be joining from across the country by the end of the year.
  • “‘My E-Haat’ initiative will be a unique model (A2C) where artisans will connect with the customer directly in the coming years,” HCL Foundation Nidhi Pundhir said in a statement.
  • The portal will assist in showcasing the ingenuity of skilled artisans from all over the country in front of the globe, resulting in increased recognition, appreciation, and remuneration, she said.
  • HCL Foundation hopes to connect with a larger number of artisans and primary producers across the country in the coming years, bridging the gap created by a lack of skill training, market assessment, and strengthening the supply chain infrastructure, he added.
  • Sharing about the new initiative, the Foundation said the platform will enable artisans and primary producers to list and showcase their products to conduct their business, thereby minimising the informal intermediaries and often long supply chains.
