Women-led & socially conscious
Lotus Sky is the founder of the New Fair Trade movement in Nepal. While the "Old" Fair Trade demanded a "living" wage for artisans, we take it a step further to demand a "saveable" wage for artisans. A living wage is the bare minimum, allowing artisans to support their families, pay their rent and buy food and it was a great first step. A saveable wage allows for all this, but also puts money in the bank when all necessary living expenses have been paid. Only when women have the opportunity to save, invest and put money toward making significant changes in their lives and the lives of their children, does true change happen.
