As a minority group in India, Muslim herdsmen continually face discrimination, making it difficult for them to find jobs and access government benefits. Although they grow wheat and corn and raise cows or water buffalo, they only earn $1 per day. Many were affected by a powerful earthquake in 2005 and suffer with the effects from contaminated water. Artists, mainly men, working with Village Artisans use their talents in jewelrymaking and papermaking to earn an income, which helps them to rebuild their houses and dig deeper, cleaner wells.
