Artisan: Mahaguthi, Craft With A Conscience
Since 1984, Mahaguthi, Craft With A Conscience has been working to bring economic empowerment to small producers and artisans through the practice of fair trade. The producers create a variety of handcrafted products and export them around the globe. Forty percent of the proceeds from these ventures fund "Tulshi Mehar Mahila Ashram," a rehabilitation and covational center that offers destitute women a home, a free educational two-year program that provides lessons in weaving, sewing, knitting and literacy, and education for the women's children. The rest of Mahaguthi's income is used to generate various projects for the economic empowerment of Nepal's people, especially women.
All of Mahaguthi, Craft With A Conscience's in-house artisans are women, as are almost 85% of the artisans and producers the organization partners with. These women often come to Mahaguthi because their employement choices elsewhere are limited due to poor education and a lack of vocational training. Mahaguthi provides their workers with business, quality management, and occupational safety training, and works together with Fair Trade Group Nepal to promote fair trade buying.
