Together with local partner Kar.ma Coffee, five women were trained as carpenters. They completed many training sessions such as turnery and learned to handle heavy machinery. These are led, among others, by our local partner, the Nepal Youth Foundation. In everyday life, they also learn a lot about planning work processes and organization, which is important for a successful company. The products were sold locally and also in Austria. The carpenters have now successfully completed their training.
The carpenters work steadily with perseverance, passion and courage, many new products are added to the range. In addition, they regularly complete trainings and trainings, for example for wood turning. These are managed, among other things, by our local partner, the Nepal Youth Foundation.

Together with our local partner Kar.ma Coffee Nepal we achieved that five women are being trained as carpenters. Carola Gosch visited the project during her trip to Nepal in March / April 2017 and was able to get an idea how the women work. They are highly motivated, have already received an introduction and also manufactured first products. The products combine traditional handicraft and contemporary design. Since May 2017 the products have also been available in Austria! The net avails of selling these products, flow back into new Projects to support women. The training of women as female carpenters enable them to live a self-determined life and to look after themselves and their children.
The requirements for the needed infrastructure and an international expert could be identified. The selection of women who are trained as female carpenters will be carried out together with a Kathmandu NGO in January.
