There are a number of Khadi Spinning and Weaving units functioning under the Board that employs hundreds of rural men and women
The Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board came into existence way back in 1957, carrying forward the cherished dreams of the father of our nation; championing the cause of the upliftment of the downtrodden, employing the rural population and eradicating poverty.
Gandhiji believed that the development of the villages is vital for the growth of the country.
The Board reflects the Gandhian economic philosophy and helps in the progress of the villages, where 75% of the Indian population lives. Its activities reflects the silent revolution in building up a strong and self-reliant rural community.
There are a number of Khadi Spinning and Weaving units functioning under the Board that employs hundreds of rural men and women.
The Board also offers financial assistance to the villagers for setting up industries and has so far assisted many entrepreneurs in establishing and successfully running different industrial units.
