Unique Project

Friendsheep's Unique Project is an empowerment project aimed to support underprivileged women with disabilities in Nepal.

In Nepal the standard living conditions are extremely hard for physically challenged and people with disabilities, and especially for women. Due to traditional conservative culture and male dominated society, in addition to lack of education, knowledge, and technology, people with disabilities are often badly neglected by their own families and communities. 

Women with disabilities are discriminated thrice: firstly for their gender, secondly for being poor and thirdly for being disabled. 

While in Nepal we learned of the work EPSA, an organization based in Kathmandu whose goal is to empower and assist women with disabilities through training and employment opportunities. It felt that it was important for us to partner with them and bring you the beautiful felting work of these amazing artisans.

This is how "Unique Project" was born.

Each piece is unique.

Each piece is lovingly hand made by a proud woman with disabilities.

Each of these fair trade purchases supports incredible women as they work with dedication, passion, and always a beautiful smile to overcome the difficult conditions they are faced with and provide a better life for themselves and for their families.
