ORGANIZATIONS THAT SUPPORT OUR WORK
Sewpportive Friends trains women and girls in rural villages in Africa to make home-sewn, washable, reusable feminine hygiene products. They brought their training to mothers- daughters pairs and Naari women in the fall of 2022.
A division of Creative Learning, Aid to Artisans creates economic opportunities for artisan groups around the world where livelihoods, communities, and craft traditions are marginal or at risk. They provided funds to Himalayan Naari to build our wool bank, so that we have an assured supply of materials to make our products.
Thistle Farms Global Market is an on-line marketplace selling products from women across the world. They have been wonderful customers of Naari products and have provided generous operational support during the pandemic.
MERRILL FAMILY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
Merrill Family Charitable Foundation (MFCF) has supported a number of Naari’s startup initiatives including creating a wool fund to assure that artisans have the resources they need to work consistently. Their generosity allows us to take the risks of new ventures to strengthen the Naari community.
Paxworks has generously supported the Women and Girls Health Initiative and the start up of Naari Store in Chaukori. With Paxworks encouragement the women and girls in the community have enhanced their skills and begun learning grant-writing.
SoLight Design, an innovative and environmentally conscious lighting compnay has supported our “No more Knitting in the Dark” campaign, enabling us to provide solar lanterns to all our knitters and weavers.
