Summer Update 2015

  1. 1. Healing Herbs Nepal Update Summer 2015
  2. 2. In April our team flew out to Nepal to check in on our partner farmers and the progress of our Healing Herbs Nepal Program. Subsequently, we just happened to be on the ground with the farmers when the earthquake struck. While this event was extremely devastating for the country of Nepal and some of our partners experienced loss or damage to their housing, we are very happy to report that our entire team and all of our partner farmers are alive and well.
  3. 3. The severity of the quake reminded us just how vulnerable our friends in Nepal are and has reinforced our passion and determination to support them with desperately needed economic opportunity.
  4. 4. As life slowly gets back to normal in the village, we are excited to update you on all of the uplifting progress currently underway.
  5. 5. Women’s Human Rights Organization (WHR) In our last update we informed you about our newly formed partnership with WHR. We are happy to report that they have been busy planting yacon tubers that will be processed into syrup and brought to the US for retail sale.
  6. 6. We rolled up our sleeves and helped out - such a fun day!
  7. 7. Yacon is a low-glycemic, low calorie, prebiotic sweetener that fosters healthy probiotic growth. While yacon has been gaining popularity in Europe, it is just starting to catch on in the US and we are very excited to help bring this healthy sweetener to you.
  8. 8. Profit sharing from yacon sales will help WHR provide widows and single mothers with technical training, educational scholarships, and meeting space where women can go to have social and emotional support in their time of need.
  9. 9. Kanchenjunga Tea Estate
  10. 10. The Kanchenjunga mountain range is the 3rd largest in the world and borders the darjeeling area of India creating ideal conditions for growing tea. KTE has never sprayed pesticides on their soil, which has created some of the purest and most fertile soil in Nepal.
  11. 11. Equally as important, KTE requires that all farmers send their daughters to school, provides educational scholarships, started a community cow program to ensure all farmers had access to fresh milk, and 25% of their work force is comprised of the most marginalized caste in Nepal. We are very proud to partner with KTE to support these efforts and bring you some of the highest quality tea you will ever taste.
  12. 12. Our team did a tasting and everyone approved!
  13. 13. Thank you for your continued interest and support of the Healing Herbs Nepal program. Now more than ever the people of Nepal need the support of our partnership. We remain eternally dedicated to improving the livelihoods of farmers in rural Nepal. Please stay tuned for a big announcement in early fall regarding our newest application of the HHN program. Until then, Namaste friends.
