FHS came into existence in the year 2000 under the Society Act XXI of 1860 with a cherished objective of improving the living conditions of artisans engaged in the handicraft sector. Over the years, it expanded its horizon to include skill development, skill up gradation, and implementation of new methods, encouraging unemployed and economically backward people to learn handicraft techniques, and empower artisans holistically.
It also provides hygienic and sound working atmosphere to the artisans, apprise and encourage them to seek benefits under various government schemes, give them market exposure, and motivate them to learn entrepreneurial skills.
We started FHS with a noble thought and vision of playing a pioneering role in uplifting artisans in the handicraft sector. It was a humble beginning laden with obstacles and hindrances. But our never give up approach made us move ahead in the direction of our cherished goals. Finally our hard work paid off, and today we are actively engaged in all the aspects whether an organizational set up, formation of SHGs, training programmes, seminars, exhibitions and fairs, welfare programmes, government tie-ups or suppoeted programmes and schemes, sponsored projects, welfare camps, and e commerce. We started from a part of Delhi, now expanded to different states of the country. We continuously strive at making artisan self reliant, hence escaping the middleman channel in the market linkages.
We, at FHS make sincere efforts to strike a balance between traditional craft and modern changes.
We are nourishing a vision of continuously and humbly contributing to economic development of the country.
