Announcing alliance with Hoste Hainse

Hoste Hainse, a non-profit non-governmental organization (NGO), was founded in 1990 by Sulochana Shrestha-Shah, and had the initial purpose of ensuring sound working conditions for the employees of its sister concern, Formation Carpets, a for-profit hand-knotted rug exporting business. The efforts of Hoste Hainse included hygiene programs with complimentary health insurance, provident fund facilities, and paid maternity leave, to name a few, for a 100% women workforce advocating woman empowerment. Programs like a day-care and pre-school facility for the children of the employees, to ensure the children would not end up playing on the streets (which was a problem that plagued Nepal then), were one of the first milestone efforts of Hoste Hainse. As the children grew up, Hoste Hainse started to become involved in obtaining full/partial scholarships for them to attend school with the proceeds of Formation Carpets business. This catapulted Hoste Hainse into the education sector.

Hoste Hainse currently runs four schools grades 1-10 in four villages in the district of Sarlahi in the south of Nepal, Sarlahi being a "durgam chhetra" which in Nepali means that the poverty level is very high and the education level is very low. Our programs in Sarlahi started in 1998, and 17 years later we are proud to share that our SLC (school leaving certificate) pass rate has always been over 90% since inception, with the national average being at 40% and the government school average being at 20%. Hoste Hainse also provides educational support to schools in Jhapa, Nawalparasi and Bajura in conjunction with partner organizations.

A paragon in providing educational support to underprivileged children across Nepal, Hoste Hainse has more success stories than it has been able to tell, public relations being one of its weaknesses. To tackle this, we have recently started an informal blog, which aims to tell stories expediently as they happen, before they get lost: www.hostehainse.org/blog .

Hence, what started as a simple scholarship project for five underprivileged children at a carpet factory is now an organization that supports over 2,000 across Nepal.

About

Nuptse, your destination for exclusive handcrafted Nepalese jewelry and accessories.

Nuptse is a collaboration between me, my sister, Keepa, and a team of highly skilled Nepalese artists who share passion of creating handcrafted products. I have been designing and making seed beads jewelry as a hobby in Nepal. I started selling my handmade jewelry at local arts and craft fairs in Connecticut. I was delighted to see a great interest on my hand-made products and decided to open an online store with a few of our handmade jewelry in 2011 in collaboration with my sister living in Kathmandu, Nepal. As the interest and demand grew on our products, we opened our workshop at our home in Kathmandu, Nepal and added four local artists Sharda, Sabita, Radha, and Kumara to join us in this venture.

Keepa and I are the main designers, and work with the team of artist on weekly basis at their workshop in Nepal. Our main approach is to provide opportunities to our women artists to work from home at their convenient time apart from doing their daily household work. The entire product listed in this store are made by us in Nepal and marketed through home based studio in Fairfield, CT. This venture has helped our artists to show their skills in making these traditional jewelry and generate additional household income.

We are grateful for this opportunity to showcase our fine craftsmanship through our beautiful handcrafted jewelry which we Nepalese artists are renowned for.
