We are so excited to introduce you to our newest partner in Kathmandu, Nepal. Dawn visited this center in January and got conversation going with the wonderful staff there about a partnership. Now, just a month after the earthquakes, we are prepared to begin selling their products. As the earthquake has put so many women and girls at risk, we are thankful to be able to provide dignified employment in the midst of a horrible tragedy that had left so many vulnerable.
Introducing Higher Ground, who says their mission is to "fight against poverty and human trafficking through awareness, education, skill development, counseling and micro enterprise."
Higher Ground has two branches of their organization; one is the business side where women learn are a part of their cafe/bakery or their crafts center. The other side of the organization does community development, an essential component to making a lasting difference.
So, what products will Made for Freedom be carrying?
