We offer hand spun, handwoven and vegetable dyed antique replica carpets for sale to support our ladies' weaving co operative. These are beautiful woolen carpets with traditional Tibetan designs that help to preserve their endangered art of weaving. The women's co-op is called the Yangma Exclusive Handicraft. Please contact to make an order.
The co-operative was started in an effort to preserve these Tibetan traditions and for the support of the Walung Villagers who reside on the border of Tibet and Nepal near Everest region. The more remote villagers, and especially women, are enabled and empowered to gain respectable and fair livelihoods in their own village, the less the temptation will be to try to migrate to try to make it in the city or out even out of the country. This separation of families is devastating their unique culture and many find themselves in the city unable to return and end up willing to donanything to support their families. Many desparate Himalayan families from villages like Walung send their small children to the city to become household servants leading to abuse and discrimination.
We have started a dollar a day program to provide a hot and nutritious meal and emergency outreach to street children in Katmandu while they are awaiting an opening in a child home. Due to political chaos and economic difficulty many trafficked or abandoned children struggle to survive on the street in Kathmandu without proper care or protection. Our help is so important to them. Please consider giving what you can. Your help is greatly appreciated and has helped the lives of many already!
