Bichli Haveli Project in India 

Through the Bichli Haveli Project, Restoration Works and its Indian partners are rehabilitating a 140-year old traditional courtyard house located in the old city of Udaipur, Rajasthan and are transforming it into a community and heritage resource center. The project aims to bring many benefits to the local community by providing skilled job training (especially for women), supporting local suppliers and services, and empowering residents to celebrate their heritage and improve their quality of life.
