The Bindi Project

Training low-income women as community concierges

The Bindi Project is a sustainable train-the-trainee program that provides women in low-income neighborhoods with the knowledge, skills, and support they need to become leaders and catalysts for change with and in their communities.

The project is a collaboration between Design for America of New York University, a student club focused on using human-centered design to tackle social issues, and Women for Human Rights (WHR), an NGO based in Nepal that aims to empower single women economically, politically, socially, and culturally.
