Describe the objective of the promotion.
The highly celebrated Arts & Crafts industry of India is responsible for some of the finest handicrafts in the world. Exquisite carpets, handcrafted woodwork, ornate ceramics, hand embroidered silk & zaree goods. However it hides an ugly truth. 60 million enslaved children. People who buy these products are unaware of this. Our task was to raise consumer awareness and gather as many petitioners to put pressure on the government to enforce the laws against child labour.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
We put together a team of skilled artisans from across industries, and redesigned the lead products of the industry. In these we incorporated suffering children in the designs, thus exposing the ugly truth through the handicrafts themselves. We held a series of mobile exhibitions of these goods across street corners & stores across Delhi. We released small space ads, posters & emailers leading people to these exhibitions where consumers saw the ugly truth for themselves.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
More than 33,000 petitioners have already joined the petition. The people came out on to the streets to support the cause. The government was forced to respond. Mr. Mangat Ram Singal, Labour Minister of Delhi along with several members of parliament have already joined the fight against child labour. With government support, rescue operations have stepped up. In the last couple of months alone 46 raids were conducted, 576 children rescued, 31 employers prosecuted. After a proper rehabilitation these children have been reunited with their families. The fight will continue, Until every child in India is free.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
By incorporating suffering children in the designs the handicraft itself exposed the ugly truth. Thus delivering the message through the handicrafts themselves.
