Secret Projects

Secret Projects make products that are foldable, useful, purposeful and charming! The making and selling of each one unfolds a woman’s power in India. We work with women who live in places where there is little or no income generating activities. We offer each of our Makers a place on our Training for Empowerment Programme. They learn to make our simple, high quality products that people use in their every-day lives. Our lead product is the famous and much loved Secret Pillow, a pillow that unfolds into a blanket, an essential for every sofa in the UK!
We unfold women’s power in India through the making and selling of foldable, useful, purposeful and charming products.

Meet Shaheena

Shaheena is a Secret Pillow Project Maker. She has 2 young sons and lives with her husband in a rented, one room house in her village in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. There is very little work in the area where she lives, particularly because she has to stay at home and look after her children.

Her husband is away for long periods of time because he works on construction sites in the city to earn a daily wage. Shaheena works hard to earn a little money making sari blouses for other women in the village. She loves being part of Secret Projects because she can pay for 1 year’s school fees for one of her sons by making just 10 Secret Pillows.

Shaheena has her own sewing machine and she also bought a motor for it with the income she earnt from Secret Projects.
