The Zahra Handworks Foundation was initiated by Indigo as a part of her service learning degree requirement for her master's degree in Ecopsychology at Naropa University. She quickly realized that something of consequence was developing. Now, with the help of many friends, allies, and organizational partnerships, she carries Zahra forward into the future, holding the intention to spread it to where ever it is needed. It is because of the dedication and commitment of these people that Zahra is able to exist.
