Let us explain
It all starts with education! Our weekly classes provide the opportunity for marginalized women to complete a primary education.
Learning by doing! Through HATTIHATTI, women get the chance to learn & practice new tailoring skills.
Being independent! Through the HATTIHATTI program, these women are advised and guided in how to start & maintain their own company. They strive towards making a sustainable living.
We are committed towards empowering women from marginalised communities to achieve their full social and economic potentials by enhancing their capacity to choose and lead their lives for the betterment of themselves and their communities. We provide them with the necessary life skills and opportunities to help make sustainable connections towards a promising future.
To create sustainable societies – social and environmental – by empowering marginalised women and communities.
To create economic opportunities for women from marginalised communities through training and life skills development.
To provide social and economic support to women from marginalised communities by engaging with their communities – both within and outside.
To enhance the livelihoods of women and the local communities by generating meaningful opportunities for employment, entrepreneurship and sustainable growth.
To promote awareness and preparedness towards a more sustainable living by advocating for a conscious practice of consumption.
SO WHY THE ELEPHANTS?
Hatti means elephant in Nepali. Elephants are extraordinary creatures with many good qualities. With their big hearts, they live in a herd and always take care of each other.
Even though elephants and tailoring do not have a lot in common we strive to use the same qualities in the way we run our organisation.
