Due to its remote location, Ganesh Himal Trading had to be creative with the raw materials used for products made by this group. The materials used to make their products are primarily recycled and are transported on the backs of the villagers over a two day mountain trek to their community. Lack of tools and electricity create another obstacle to producing products. Determined to provide economic opportunity to women in this village following the devastating earthquake of April 2015, Ganesh Himal Trading combined simple skill with beautiful detail to make a variety of products!
They believe that building long lasting relationships based on trust, dialogue and mutual respect is key to community building and helps move us toward a more equitable future.
Striving for economic justice is where their business began. When Ganesh Himal Trading was established, they decided to seek out producer groups that worked with marginalized individuals (e.g. women and Tibetan refugees) so they could gain access to trading relationships for economic mobility. This has led to years of partnering with women producers to co-create a world where women have control over their money, are empowered to make their own decisions and have a respected voice in all discussions. Overall, they believe that trade is interrelational and that access to trading relationships is key to enhancing people’s lives and traditions. THey have also committed to facilitating solutions to other economic barriers (i.e. healthcare, education) through their non-profit, Conscious Connections Foundation.
