SUSTAINABLE FASHION FOR YOU TO CHANGE THE WORLD WITH STYLE



CHILDREN & YOUNG GIRLS IN NEPAL
We´re both humble and proud to introduce you to our latest longterm collaboration with the incredible changemakers of the swedish based Wild Heights.  This small non-profit organization mission is to support a orphanage in Taudaha which is a small village outside Kathamndu in Nepal. This place is runed by HORAC, which stands for Home for Rescue of the Afflicted Children. The main purpose of the organization is to work for the welfare of the children, especially those who are the victim of political conflict in the country and the extreme poverty.

Many children lost one or both of their parents during the conflict or are abandoned by their extremely poor parents to languish in the streets, beg and face exploitation deprived of their basic human rights. This organization provides the basic needs like food, accommodation, clothes, education, love and care, special guidance and takes care of their basic rights, so that these children will be capable of living a meaningful life and contributing to the society in future. 


In order to give back to the region where our up-cycled textiles first originated we also collaborate with the Swedish non-profit Gatubarn i Nepal. To give you a little background information about this non-profit we would like to introduce you to a association that truly make a difference in this world.   Gatubarn i Nepal was founded in 2010 and has ever since been working to support and empower children and young women in Nepal.



Help us fight trafficking in Nepal via our non-profit sister organization Gatubarn i Nepal.  


This long-term work is based on sustainable principles in accordance with the Global goals and all projects are based on human rights. Via local support they run a home for girls who have lived on the street in Kathmandu and provide them with education and safety. In a move to bring about a reduction in childbirth deaths, they have also begun to educate midwives. This special program is given to young girls from poor families with no access to higher education. Highest priority is given to girls since they in particular run the risk of human trafficking and we can´t imagine anything more important than supporting this.  Everything this organization dive into is 100% locally anchored in order to meet the actual demand and the main goal is to help people helping themselves.  We love this way of working for change and therefore this will be the beginning of a long-term partnership. 
 
 

 


WHERE THE MONEY GOES
When we donate money we always do our best to meet the demand. We involve the children and ask them what they think is the most important thing to develop and their opinion is absolutely crucial. Based on their thoughts and in a dialogue with the organisation each thing we support is locally rooted. Examples of what our money goes to is following; teachers are hired, hygiene products have been purchased to provide the young females with everything they need during their circle and school fees have been paid for all the children on the orphanage in Nepal. The list goes on and we´re happy to keep you informed in social media and our blog called STORIES.

All this is possible thanks to you and your conscious choice and decision to dress up for change – from one sister to another. 

 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
