For the past 7 years, The Red Sari has been on a mission to create and sustain jobs for women in Nepal. For women in this small South Asian country, jobs represent more than income – working liberates them from lives of isolation, builds confidence, and bestows status within their families and communities. Following the devastating earthquakes of April and May in 2015, The Red Sari launched a gofundme campaign funding emergency rescue and relief efforts conducted by grass roots partners in Nepal: medical aid and assistance, food, and temporary shelter. We raised over $30,000 in the first month with all donations going toward emergency assistance.
Rebuild Nepal 2.0 is our new campaign to rebuild lives and livelihoods in the earthquake affected villages of Nepal. Over the next 5 years we hope to invest $100,000 to rebuild craft workshops, schools, libraries and health posts in the areas with the greatest need. We will also be working with grass roots organizations in Nepal providing women with targeted support through counseling and referral services, reactivating existing women’s groups, and empowering women through life skills training and activities to strengthen their ability to provide for themselves and their families.
We’re committed to Nepal – this beautiful home of the Himalayan Mountains – and her people for the long-term. Please join us!
