TARA Projects was established by Prof Shyam S Sharma in 1973 with the objective of empowering economically disadvantaged artisans in Delhi and working towards eradicating unfair trade practices and child labour. TARA actively engages in providing support services to artisans in the production and marketing of handicraft, and helps them work towards overcoming poverty and illiteracy, and hence exploitation.
Prof Shyam S Sharma founded the Asia Fair Trade Forum, and was also a founding member of the Fair Trade Forum India. TARA is also a pioneer in non-formal education programs for women and children, provides medical insurance, interest-free loans, skills training and savings programs to its artisans. Working with registered cooperative communities and small family workshops, TARA tries to ensure that wages are at least 15% and as much as 50% above normal when sales enable this.
