Family & Friends Project

This week we are sharing extracts from our Open Letter for Action:

"The following is a snapshot of what we do that will hopefully encourage you and your corporation to follow suit:

• We started the campaign Clean City because the people of Kathmandu valley are unknowingly inhaling fumes equivalent to the smoking of 10 cigarettes every day;
• We provide menstruation wellness kits to poor school girls and women so they can feel comfortable and not miss school;
• We started the project Donate Creative Backpack because 20% Nepali students do not have sufficient supplies to attend school;
• Local Women’s Handicrafts follow the 10 principles of Fair Trade;
• We have a biogas where we recycle all our leftovers into a cooking gas;
• We train Earthquake victims and marginalized women with sustainable skills to make them independent. Since 2008, we have trained more than 100 women;
• We also have a cooperative shop where we invite every buyer to connect with all the employees and it is mandatory that every buyer visits our factory and connects with each artist.

I believe in the business of empowerment. I believe in empowering the people to improve their own lives. We are creating opportunities to inform other factories about working under Fair Trade conditions is possible, that a living wage is possible, and that ethical trade is possible."
