About the Artisans:
Mulxiply's mission is to stabilize economies in the developing world through creating dignified jobs by investing in indigenous, artisanal businesses who collaborate to produce our contemporary designs via age-old techniques. In doing so, they are keeping heritage handicraft alive and providing local employment in societies where those with little or no education are at risk of being trafficked to other countries or enslaved in migrant worker schemes abroad. They partner with people and organizations like The Association of Craft Producers Nepal.
The Association for Craft Producers Nepal (ACP): Founded in 1984 with just 38 producers, ACP now employs over 1,200 artisans, of which 90% are female. ACP recognizes the need for female employment in both rural and urban settings, providing opportunity for both. Situated at the foot of the Himalayas, ACP also recognizes the exquisite beauty of their country and as stated on their website, “takes careful and deliberate steps to preserve our environment”.
Why Nepal: There are approximately 28 million people living in Nepal. Half of the population live below the poverty line, earning less that $1.25 per day. Only half of its citizens can read: only 35% of the literate are women. Employment rates hover around 50%. Millions of men continue to leave the country as migrant workers in the Middle East, leaving women and children vulnerable to human traffickers
