Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles was on Tuesday impressed with the ‘Kudumbashree’ project in Kerala in which 40 lakh women are working. The Duchess was very impressed when she was told that 40 lakh women were involved in the community-based state Poverty Eradication Mission throughout Kerala.

The Duchess also saw an exhibition of various products of Kudumbashree made of bamboo, wood and terracotta. The terracotta products including jewellery, jumkies, chains with Kathakali motif, decorative candles, eco friendly paper bags and edible products put up at nearby Aluva.

‘Kudumbashree’ meaning prosperity of the families, aims at empowerment of women by forming self help groups and encouraging their entrepreneurial abilities. The Aluva municipality welcomed her and a ‘Onam’ festival market was re-created for the visitor with vegetables and Kudumbashree products.
