Another great organization helping to prevent human trafficking and help the women regain their dignity and get back on their feet after almost unimaginably horrendous experiences. Vist the Maiti Nepal website for more information, ways to help, make purchases, and if you are in our vicinity in Japan and have a chance to visit a festival we are attending you can buy Maiti Nepal handicraft items directly from us, with nearly all of the proceeds going back to the women at Maiti Nepal. Have a look. ... See MoreSee Less

Had the great opportunity to attend the talk and enjoy a very pleasant dinner afterwards, with the always warm and cheerful Charimaya Tamang, the Co-founder of Shakti Samuha, an aniti-human trafficking organization in Nepal that we have had the pleasure of knowing for the last few years, and honor of working with recently.

Charimaya gave an informative talk to over 300 students at Kwansei University, as part of her first visit to Japan. We hope that she will be able to make other return visits to Japan in the not too distant future. Thanks to Omori-san for letting us know of her visit, Professor Takeda for organizing the event, and Yamamoto-sans very effective translating.

Have a look at the Shakti Samuha website for more details and ways to help
