Local Women's Handicrafts

In 2010 Nasreen founded “Local Women’s Handicrafts” with her brother and younger sister; Local women focused on Empower disadvantaged women in Nepal. Nasreen comes from a remote village on the border of India and Nepal where woman have very little rights and livevery disadvantaged lives. When she was 12 years old she was able to escape from the oppressive circumstances she was born into. She came to Kathmandu where she learned and worked as a laborer making clothing and accessories for large export companies. Nasreen would work 10-14 hours for no more than five dollars a day. Nasreen was fortunate enough to meet an American teacher living in Nepal who gave her a free education.
