10% of each item purchased is reinvested into the Women’s Nettle Collectives in the eastern Himalayas.
In general, the Nepalese economy is characterized by slow growth, mass poverty and large scale deprivations. About 85 percent of the 23 million people of the country live in rural areas that are desperately in need of revenue.
We are specifically dedicated to supporting the growth of handicraft production in the remote rural area of Sankhuwasabha.
This takes many forms including direct monetary support, business consulting, connecting them with government assistance via grants, and more
By working with the Women’s Nettle Collectives in this area, we aim to create a favorable and inclusive environment for these women artisans to carry out their activities and to pass on their skills and their businesses to future generations.
