Newer Technology Intervention Program

A Government funded program which aims to develop new products using eco friendly materials to suit the tastes and preferences of contemporary market using the traditional skill of artisans and introduction of new techniques and technologies for enhanced production. In this line, few initiatives such as training to make trendy products using modern technology, supplying tool kits to artisans and linking this program with KADCO’s own conceived program called “Gurukulam” have been already taken and this have helped contribute to Government public schools needs. It is intended to support 10,000 artisans through this program.


As and when Government has come up with a noble concept of Education Mission – Revival of Public education system, KADCO conceived “Gurukulam” project with twin objectives. First is to tap this opportunity to the traditional artisans and second is to support a highly relevant Government Initiaitive. “Gurukulam” intends to renovate the infrastructure facilities of public schools by mobilizing funds from private public and govt institutions using the skillset of local artisans

Labour Data Bank

Even though it is estimated to have about 15 lakh traditional artisans across Kerala, their availability for Government and non-Government projects is minimal. To overcome this issue, and to ensure their availability for Government and non-Government projects, and thereby reduce the current skill gap in the projects, and control the cost escalation due to non-availability of skilled resources, and help implement projects in a time bound manner, KADCO has decided to map all artisans scattered across the state under one umbrella and make their services available by creating a Labour Data Bank.

Market Development Intiaitive

Rural kerala is abundant with natural fibers, clay, bamboo etc . The enriched craftsmanship of artisans especially women at home in rural areas demanded KADCO to device a marketing intiative which uplift their economic well being.Life style products blending the eco friendly raw materials and craftsmanship of women artisan folks would lead to creation of products under tagline of “Genuine Artisan Products From KADCO” which would be marketed in super/hyper markets across kerala.
