Ismaili Muslim Student Association-University of Texas- Austin fundraises by selling handmade Pakistani bags

“These women don’t have electricity, like it’s not from a sewing machine that these products are made,” Tajani said. “It’s to show … you use the resources you have available, and you become self-sustainable, so you can have a better quality of life, and also so you can become a contributing member of society.” said Shama Tajani, a health and society and pre-med senior and vice president of external affairs of IMSA

Thread Net Hunza is a collaborative project created by the women and other disadvantaged residents of Hunza Valley to provide steady revenue and create a sustainable lifestyle to those people of this area through grants funded by the Aga Khan Foundation, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Karakoram Area Development Organization.

The colorful products serve as a monthly fundraiser for the Ismaili Muslim Students Association, a faith-based but all-inclusive organization that promotes community service, health and fitness and connections with other organizations.
