Yes Helping Hands
Yes Helping Hands Handicrafts provides training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Nepal, including individuals who are blind, deaf, or have other barriers to employment.
Through their work, they aim to challenge the discrimination their artisans face within society, build their confidence, and enable them to enjoy an independent life.
“People with disabilities need access to specific skill-trainings and work assistance in order to thrive, but many people in Nepal do not have access to these accommodations. I want to help artisans with disabilities become independent. When people offer us donations, I encourage them instead to buy from our workshop. Donations have a one-time benefit, but when you buy products made by artisans with disabilities, you are providing work opportunities, and work opportunities provide dignity”
