Urvee Charitable Trust
Our first project is concerned with encouraging woman artisans who work with re-cycled paper. Our focus here is to help them recognize that their skill can result in a lot more than an end-product. It can help save a very valuable resource...Trees! Through the free paper bag making workshops under-priveleged women learn a craft and earn while they learn. Every bag is hand crafted to perfection.
Urvee Charitable Trust accepts donations for many projects that aims at empowering less fortunate women and girls. If you want to volunteer in any of their activities or make a donation please feel free to contact co-ordinators Rekha Mavinkurve or Nandini Karanje. You can also participate in the fund raising project by purchasing an original watercolour painting by Rekha Mavinkurve. 25% of all sales goes to URVEE to support their woman empowerment project.

Our 25 years of Journey at URVEE !!!
Due to the Virus Covid 19 URVEE had to shift their manufacturing unit to a smaller area to keep the overhead costs lower, so that our staff can still get paid and have a place to work from. Our present address from JUNE 1st 2020 is URVEE, NO. 42, Canara Union, 8th Main Road, 13th Cross, Malleswaram, Bangalore 560003
In Sanskrit, URVEE means the Earth. The Trees, the Forests, the Lakes, the Mountains. Wind, Water, Fire, Earth. The Life-blood of our existence on this planet.
We are a small team of environment-friendly enthusiasts with a mission to give back to the Earth, what it gave us, over so many generations.
We've called ourselves Urvee because it encapsulates what we stand for in our commitment to invest our time and resources. Efforts that in some small way could make the world a better place to live in.
One ton of traditional Indian handmade paper, produced from cotton rag waste, saves an estimated 277 Eucalyptus or 462 Bamboo trees that would have been cut down and sent to a conventional paper mill.
