Fair Trade From Nepal Honors Culture and Encourages Healing

Cheppu from Himalaya, a fair trade organization in Nepal, and a new partner of Jesus’ Economy, is preserving tradition and celebrating the richness of diversity. Founded in 1985, Cheppu from Himalaya works with Nepalese artisans to sell their products on the western market. Cheppu works to exchange culture between people through the reflection of ancient traditions in their products.

Cheppu from Himalaya is dedicated to providing fair compensation for artisans, and promoting safe and healthy working environments. They also have a heart for sustainable crafting and use recycled or renewable materials whenever possible.

Cheppu Works to Make the World Better

This Nepalese organization has a passion for bringing hope to the world in more ways than just through fair trade.

Cheppu isn’t just about selling Nepalese products. This organization also provides scholarships for students in need, from elementary to university level. They are currently supporting 34 Nepalese students through these scholarships. Additionally, Cheppu helps build relationships between the students and western sponsors, who can offer further financial support.

A micro-credit organization, established in 2013, is another way Cheppu from Himalaya works to benefit the world. This program helps indigenous women farmers in Nepal change their farming from conventional to organic. It now has 150 members who have received training and short-term loans.

After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, Cheppu connected with a non-profit aid group called WeHelpNepal to volunteer time and resources in healing the nation.

Fair trade is a way to bring hope to people around the world, and this organization is committed to creating beautiful and fairly traded products and using their influence to come alongside and help people in real, practical ways.
