3. WFTO Fair Trade Certified in Nepal
That’s a big deal. We’ve worked with the same environmentally responsible and community-minded artisans in Nepal for years. We know how well they treat their workers and how sustainably they craft their goods. They were the first to be Fair Trade Certified in Nepal, and our ongoing support will help them complete the rigorous certification process for Fair Trade in the U.S. as well.
In southwestern Nepal, little girls are sometimes sold into slavery to wealthier families. Called ‘Kamlari,’ these girls are forced into heavy farm labor, menial housework and more at ages as young as nine. The Nepal Youth Foundation helps rescued Kamlari women find stable housing, schooling and economic opportunities, and our artisans are part of this effort. Over 70 of these women now handcraft our Nepalese Fair Trade Fleece—earning a living and building better lives.
