Pasta with a punch – delivered to your doorstep!

Did you imagine that when buying your groceries you could make a difference to someone’s life? Well now you can…
Home made pasta and freshly made sauces delivered to your doorstep is somewhat of a luxury, whether by Indian or European standards. An education is also somewhat of a luxury for many children in India, as you well know.

Now you can combine your luxury with theirs.

When you buy your pasta from DP Fresh Pasta services, a social enterprise created by a Dutch born education worker, you are helping fund the education of many slum dwelling children in the suburbs of Delhi. The proceeds of the sales – 90% of profits – are invested into providing free education and training to children and adults through the Dili Trust association (http://www.diliwebsite.com).

And if that doesn’t sound good enough, wait until you try the pasta and sumptuous sources that they also make. Freshly made tagliatelle, spagetti and lasagna with a choice of basic or wholewheat flour and yolk or eggless, not to forget the ravioli stuffed with chicken or mutton kebab or even gouda or cheddar cheese.

Plain or chunky tomato sauce or basic alfredo sauce can also be ordered to accompany the feast fit for a diva or Roman emperor!

To order, simply go to the company website: www.dpfreshpastaservices.in, send an email to info@dpfreshpastaservices or call on 96 50 10 59 89.

And spread the word… Pasta has never tasted so sweet!

My Choices Sustainability Store

My Choices is an organization based in India created to give women choices – a choice to live a life free from abuse.

Our mission is to stop domestic violence by training and employing women – PeaceMakers – who work within their community to create meaningful change in victims’ lives. We believe that domestic violence can be stopped.

A PeaceMaker is a local woman who has been trained and equipped by My Choices to work in her community counseling, educating and assisting victims of domestic violence and provide legal guidance if necessary.

The Golconda Sustainability Program started in 2013 in an effort to provide financial stability to the work of My Choices. In the beginning, twenty marginalized women joined the 3-month training in design, color theory and sewing. We now employ more than 26 women, called PeaceCrafters, and continue to grow. For most of these women, this is the first skills training and first paycheck they have every received.

The products you see here are handmade by our PeaceCrafters. 100% of the proceeds go to sustain these women and the services My Choices provides to victims of violence. All our products are made from 100% silk, up-cycled saris.

You can go to www.mychoices.asia to learn more about what we do, meet some of our women and learn how you can help stop domestic violence in India.
