Description

In 2012, Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop opened his workshop in one of the poorest areas of Mumbai, India. He works with the Tiny Miracles Foundation, founded by his cousin Laurien Meuter in 2010. In the workshop he teaches men and women how to produce high-end design. It requires patience and persistence to teach fine skills to people who have never worked before. The community becomes increasingly self confident through meaningful jobs and income. Tiny Miracles Foundation has set the ambition to break the poverty cycle of the 700 people Pardeshi community by 2020.
