How does khadi concern this project?

What Gandhiji did with khadi is amazing. He got people to sustain themselves through a cultural product that was symbolically and economically viable.

Khadi is a material equivalent of an ideology of self-sufficiency and independence.

It’s a visual symbol for a way of life. It served therefore as a potent means of translating empowerment into something doable, achievable.
