Several years ago, God started developing parallel ideas, dreams, purposes, and visions in the hearts of our two families. We all had a desire to bless and empower people struggling with poverty. We all had a heart for the beautiful, diverse nation of India. And we all dreamed of seeing sustainable solutions for the complex struggles of those in the developing world.
So, together we started Ziyada.
Ziyada (Zee-yah-duh) means more—more hope, more help, more happiness, more health—for you and for our world. Ziyada exists to provide meaningful employment in a safe, loving environment for people caught in the devastating cycle of extreme poverty in North India, and in the process, to bring you more quality and beauty through each good we create.
So, we now have the privilege of employing 20 women and 1 man, and, over the past year, we’ve been blessed to see the vision that God gave us come to life.
Each Ziyada apron features a unique design that was handmade by one of our talented artisans.
Ziyada pillows feature a variety of patchwork and hand embroidered designs, all hand made by one of our talented artisans.
