Sponsor Raw Materials in Nepal

sponsor raw materials

The nettle fibre project in Nepal is going from strength to strength, which means the producers urgently need to purchase more sheep wool, silk and angora to intertwine with the nettle yarn. This is very positive, but obviously impacts on their profits until a steady income is established, which is why we have launched a raw materials sponsorship scheme.

The producers aim to be fully self-supporting by 2015, but in the meantime your one-off sponsorship, starting from £5 would really make a difference. If you are able to sponsor these raw materials, you will play an important role in the creation of the scarves and shawls, directly helping communities in Nepal to escape the poverty trap - and close the door behind them.
