Knitting/Crocheting in Nepal
Often employment can be difficult to maintain for many women in Nepal, who need to balance work with managing their homes and looking after not only their children, but also older and extended family members. Knitting is a great way for them to continue to earn whilst also being flexible. Hand knitted items can be picked up and put down. Knitting is also a great way for women to socialize in their communities as they sit and knit. This means that they can take on as little or as much work as they feel able to do, and can supplement their family income in an empowering way that compliments their lifestyle. Knitting can also be done without the use of electricity or any additional equipment so can be done all year round – Nepal suffers from electricity shortages in the colder months. By buying items knitted in Nepal we are empowering women to become self supporting and to improve their lives.
