women center

tomato's has been working with destitute women by training them making handicraft and opportunity for them to work with us under small project of our named Aasha Ghar Women Center (House of Hopes) and make modest living as well as supporting their children. most of the women we have are from rural villages from gorkha district and abandoned by their husbands and/or widows. being single women not just make many women in nepal harder to raise their children but also bring allot of social stigma and exclusion. we have trained so far more than 100 women in last 3 years on knitting, crocheting, embroidery, stitching...and now we have 12 women working at tomato's. rest of the other women got job in other handicraft making centers. a small margin from the sales of our product goes to the a clinic in gaikhur village which support poor children and women for free medical check ups and medicine.
