WOMEN'S INTERLINK FOUNDATION


Women’s Interlink Foundation is an independent NGO that provides disadvantaged women, vulnerable 

children and wider communities with access to the essential amenities required to support their basic human rights. 


 The Foundation works towards the implementation of woman, child and community development

 projects, using a need-based model of interventions. This includes the provision of literacy services, the 

protection of vulnerable women and children, as well as the rehabilitation and 

reintegration of victims of human trafficking. 


 Beulah London is proud to partner with Women’s Interlink Foundation and provides 

an outlet for the Foundation’s sustainable fashion accessories.


The Work of Women’s Interlink Foundation


Women’s Interlink Foundation (or WIF for short) was founded in Kolkata in 1990, with the goal of 

designing and implementing programs to empower disadvantaged and abused women. They 

aim to provide them with the skills and support necessary to help them to lead independent

 lives and care for themselves and their families. 


 Registered in India under the Charitable Trusts Act, Women’s Interlink Foundation fights against 

the deprivation of basic human rights, provides literacy support, workplace skills training, and offers 

meaningful employment opportunities to the women that it assists. The Foundation 

works hard to develop strong community networks and supportive working relationships. It runs 

campaigns on both a national and international level to promote 

social justice and sustainability for communities.


 Under the remit of its various projects, the Women’s Interlink Foundation aims to act as a 

catalyst for the achievement of self-reliance for vulnerable women and children in India. They 

focus on those who are most vulnerable and have fallen victim to 

social injustice or sexual exploitation and human trafficking. 


 The WIF aim to create safe and accessible opportunities for vulnerable women and 

children to improve their literacy and learn self-supporting workplace skills. They do this 

to enable families and communities to build secure, independent futures and take 

control of their own lives, free from the fear of exploitation and victimisation. 


Children’s projects allow vulnerable, displaced and trafficked children, to learn vital life 

skills including literacy and numeracy. They also give them the chance to begin vocational

 training to allow them to become self-supporting adults 

with the necessary skills to make a living. 


Projects for women include raising awareness of the individual rights and opportunities 

that should be available to every woman, regardless of background, as well as providing skills, 

workplace training and real employment opportunities to enable socioeconomic freedom

 and personal empowerment.One of Women’s Interlink Foundation’s flagship

 programs is the Key To Freedom project, which launched in 2012. 


 Key To Freedom is supported by The Prince Andrew Charitable Trust 

and helps to find retail outlets for garments created by Women’s Interlink Foundation’s 

skilled workforce. The project provides additional opportunities 

for growth and supports the fair living wage paid to the women within WIF’s workforce.


Beulah London and the Women’s Interlink Foundation


Beulah London is delighted to play a part in Key To Freedom and support the work of Women’s Interlink Foundation

 by commissioning the Foundation to supply top quality hand-screened silk fabrics. We use the fabric in pieces

 such as own bespoke-designed collection of Bless It Forward silk ties and scarves. 


 Hand block-printed with our exclusive Beulah Hearts print, every Bless It Forward tie provides 

employment and a living wage to one woman for one day. They allow vulnerable women

 to use their skills and assert their independence by maintaining the ability to support

 themselves and their families financially. Their ultimate goal is to enable 

communities to achieve independence and a sustainable future.

 role in helping the Foundation to grow and reach out to more women and

 that traps communities, providing hope and meaningful

 opportunities for future generations.
