Our founder, Dr. Ray, once lived in Nepal. This year, we have begun to source our Nepalese products from "Student Handicraft Enterprises".
Student Handcraft Enterprises focus not only on profit, but also have an important role on the part of corporate social responsibility by providing employment opportunities to Nepalese men and women. They have women's groups, mostly from remote villages. Some of these women are poor, some marginalised, some the victim of social disorders. Student Handcraft Enterprises provide training to these women and then employ them in their production process, providing them with skills and income.
Student Handcraft Enterprises,as their name suggests, has also employed large numbers of students from various parts of Nepal. They provide training to students who come to Kathmandu for higher studies, and provide them with part-time employment to help to fund their education.
Student Handcraft Enterprises ethically produce affordable, beautiful hand-crafts; each purchase helps disadvantaged people to support themselves!
