 MUSAHAR:

The blog conveys the experiences of the Musahar business project initiated by Anne Mette Nordfalk and Karen Vibeke Bagge. The goal is to create a company of women from the poorest of the poor: The Musahar community in Rupandehi, Nepal.

The women started from scratch, they had never been to school, they don’t speak english, they never had a proper job and they could not sew.

Now they have a sewing certificate, a job, self confidence and most even savings in the bank.
