We found a stunning stationery and gift store inside the AADI organisation where items made by the differently-abled are sold, and it's all very affordable.

What Makes It Awesome
Action for Ability Development & Inclusion (AADI) is an organisation in Hauz Khas that aims to uplift the differently-abled and provides them with opportunities for leadership and greater involvement within the community.The items sold at their store are made by people from various NGOs that are working towards a particular social cause (such as the KRITI team) that facilitates action towards human rights issues or the block-printed products made by the differently-abled members and volunteers of the AADI organisation.The AADI Store is a huge room full of block-printed stationery, handicrafts and knick-knacks. We found handmade diaries, bookmarks, wrapping paper rolls, lampshades, the prettiest jewellery boxes, bottle holders, paintings, mugs and more (phew!). The price range here hardly tends to go upwards of INR 300.
The organisation is a big red building located at a walking distance from the Green Park metro station (on the road towards NIFT). If you ask the guard outside AADI, he'll guide you to their store inside.
