KEC Green Games was inspired by our commitment to a green and healthy planet for our future generations. We Manisha and Vaishali Gadekar (sisters) began our journey as educationists and have keenly observed, over 20 years, kids being steadily influenced by the digital world.
Although we don’t veto this trend, we do acknowledge that working with organic and traditional practices is also exceedingly integral to cognitive and emotional growth. Hence the need and purpose to promote and sustain this enterprise.
Our mission is to create opportunities for artisans in rural India and the marginalised urban communities to earn an income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trade relationships.
R – Commitment
- REVIVING a passion for traditional toys, storytelling, and games
- RESTORING the classics intrinsically in all our lives
- REDEFINING our world to make the digital coexist with the indigenous
We share trend details with the artisan and collaborate to create ingenious contemporary designs that preserve indigenous skills of craftsmanship passed down through generations.
It all starts with an idea. We partner with our gifted artisans to give an initial product brief, which then transforms under their expert eye to produce a product beyond comparison.
We build lasting relationships with artisan groups, providing consistency and stability that allows makers to plan ahead and improve their quality of life. We’ve partnered with women collectives from Kumaon, West Bengal and self-help groups from Rajasthan and Gujarat as well as the urban marginalised of Mumbai, Maharashtra.
