We owe a huge thank you to our customers and staff for helping us raise over $13,000 for our Flo Gives Back project in Nepal in 2019, through buying the Flo Gives Back products that give 15% of the sale price to the cause.
We are celebrating because we have seen the people positively affected by this first hand, on our trip to visit in 2018 as a family. This money will enable the amazing Share & Care team (the NGO in Nepal we work with through Tearfund NZ), to keep doing amazing work in these rural communities.
Gorgeous little Bindu, the daughter of one of the members of the first 'Women's Action Group we met in the hills of rural Nepal, with Flos sister Bella.
Typical homes up in the hills of rural Nepal.
Our lovely host for lunch, one of the key members of a Women's Action Group, who kindly opened up her home for us to share a traditional Nepalese meal.
The Flo family with the 'Creative Adolescence Group', one of the few Women's Actions Groups we visited while in rural Nepal. These girls explained how Share and Care have partnered with their community to educate, empower and protect the community, enabling them to get micro-finance loans and learn key life skills.
When we met these beautiful wee girls, Share and Care had been working with them for a little while, and it was evident the confidence they had picked up along the way was already encouraging them to dream big, and make huge positive changes in their community. What a joy it was to learn from and speak to them!
