The social buisness LHW empowers women by teaching valuable skills to give financial independance. Each woman in the program has gone through a 6 month minimum training program, choosing skills in design, sewing, weaving, embroidery, knitting, jewelry making, and pattern work to pursue. Each woman receives a stipend and sometimes a sponsor to help support them during their training, along with an ongoing offer to live in the workhouse. These skills, finicial support, and 6 months guarenteed within a safe community of women allow a huge step towards becoming independent and self sufficient.
The devastating earthquake of 2015 has been detrimental in all facets of nepalese life. For an already struggling village, this devastation was life changing. The immense financial dependancy a Nepalese woman has on her husband/brother/father was intensified with mass destruction of livestock, crops and inferstructure. It is near impossible for women to feel dependant when a man is her only source of income and general well-being. Goverment resources and NGOs hugely lack the inside knowlege vital to sustainably rebuild and support struggling villages like Goldunga, utilising both mens and womens talents. This programme empowers from within, recognising that ongoing employment and skills are vital.
Your purchase of a single rug effects this intensely intertwined society, potentially aiding everyone involved in this project to rebuild and strengthen their lives in this beautiful country.
