Description


DESCRIPTION

We are 50 local women in Kathmandu who own our workshop and make handmade, fair trade authentic Nepalese crafts and textiles like bags, shawls, jewelry and grocery shopping bags. We focus on empowering, employing and educating women who have survived childhood forced labor, abandonment, and abusive marriages.

We make clothing, accessories and Nepalese handicrafts on an exclusively eco-friendly and sustainable basis, using all natural resources and recycled materials. Your purchase of a single craft class aids all of the beautiful Nepalese women survivors involved in this project to rebuild and strengthen their lives.

What you will learn : During the class our local artisan women will teach you how to make your own souvenir at our workshop.

You will learn the ancient techniques of garment and handicraft making from Nepalese women artisans. You will also learn how to stop child labor and how to uplift disadvantaged women. You will leave with a souvenir that you made in our workshop and the experience of a lifetime!

When: Every Monday and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for 12 year olds and up.

Price includes:

  • 4 hour craft class

Meet Nasreen and Team


Member since: May 2017


My name is Nasreen. At an early age, I felt the pressure of society and my family to have an arranged marriage. 57% of women in Nepal are married before the age of 18 (UNICEF). I watched my older sister enter a forced marriage and knew I knew I would be next. I also witnessed many dark things happen to women in my village. After escaping my own forced marriage, I have since made it my life’s work to fight for women’s rights in Nepal. I started a fairtrade textile and handicraft collective in Kathmandu, focused on empowering and educating disadvantaged women using sustainable methods. My aim is to educate others and empower women through entrepreneurship and fair trade.
