Badri (45 years old) looks after the homeworkers on site
Badri is actually a tour guide and speaks perfect German, knows Nepal like no other and is one of the best guides in the country. After the earthquake, the tourists stayed away and Badri hasn't had any jobs to feed him and his family for 4 months. The reserves are exhausted and now he hopes with Simone Bruns | CASHMERE COUTURE to build a new mainstay in order to be able to feed his family again in the future and to be able to offer his 11-year-old son a perspective.
We look forward to every order that we can send to him!
Sarita (37 years old) married, 1 son
She is a housewife and mother of an 11-year-old son. She loves bright colors and especially likes to crochet.

Kamala (37 years old) single parent, 2 children
This is Kamala. I met her in front of the Bindhyabasini Temple in Pokhara. She has been sitting there for 7 years begging for alms by selling small gifts of thanks to the temple guests. She cannot read or write. Her house and that of her parents is completely destroyed. They still live in tents. We buy our temple ribbons from her every month. Since then she has been able to provide for her family better and has started to learn to read.nnengelernt. Dort sitzt sie schon seit 7 Jahren und bettelt nach Almosen, in dem sie kleine Dankesgaben an die Tempelgäste verkauft. Schreiben und lesen kann sie nicht. Ihr Haus und das ihrer Eltern ist komplett zerstört. Sie wohnen immer noch in Zelten. Bei ihr kaufen wir jeden Monat unsere Tempelbänder. Seitdem kann sie ihre Familie wieder besser versorgen und hat angefangen, lesen zu lernen.
