San'at-o-Dastakari (Handicraft) Department

 

 

The objective of this department, as described in the Constitution of the Lajna Ima'illah, is to make arrangements to hold exhibitions of handicrafts. The primary purpose of these exhibitions is to make Ahmadi ladies skillful, and also to create a cottage industry to help needy sisters. One of the main objectives of this department is to help Ahmadi ladies acquire skills making items of interest for Lajna and Nasirat. These can then be sold at Jamaat gatherings providing a useful service to buyers and sellers. This could create a cottage industry, which can be a useful tool in helping provide extra income for those sisters who may need it.
