WAMA or Women Artisans’ Marketing Agency as the name suggests works with the embroidery artisans, solely women , in Kutch district of Gujarat in India. WAMA is a for-profit organization set up by professionals as a medium to work with these artisans, to create sustainable and dignified income generation opportunities for the rural women of Kutch, through the medium of fine crafts.
   The beginning:-
The organization started in July 2001, six months after the devastating earthquake that struck Gujrat on 26th January 2001. The entire national and international support agencies responded immediately with relief and rehabilitation works. But the need for a long term support plan for income generation among low income group especially women was widely apparent.
WAMA responded by providing support services like raw material supply, training, quality control, design development, value addition and marketing support to these small groups of artisans at grass root level. It then marketed the products developed and the income generated was again ploughed back for development of their skill and providing them with better and upgraded living and working conditions. This was done in a financially sustainable manner without any external funding and support and hence profit was kept on sales of goods to enable smooth functioning of the organization.
