From 9 to 13 November 2017, CHILDREN-Nepal (CN) is participating in the 14th WFTO Biennial Conference taking place in Delhi, India.
Since 2003, Suryamukhi Handicrafts of CN has been a registered member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) and Fair Trade Group Nepal (FTGN). WFTO and FTGN are networks that provide Suryamukhi Handicrafts with a platform for social support and resources for producers, important trade connections all over the world and a strong voice for the move towards more sustainable patterns of production and consumption.
This year, we are delighted to share that one of the women of Suryamukhi Handicrafts, Mrs. Rupa B.K., has been awarded an Isabel Martin Foundation Scholarship. She is one of only four women producers from Africa, Latin America and Asia to be awarded this scholarship, giving her the opportunity to attend the event in Delhi.
