After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, Ethik worked closely with a grassroots Nepali NGO to assist in the re-building phase, by fundraising for temporary shelters and building materials. Building materials became scarce and the task became quite difficult for the NGO. We also decided that looking into the future, this was not our area of expertise and that our efforts could be better utilized by supporting the future generation of Nepali children through education. With the assistance of our NGO partner in Nepal, we were able to identify a school and also some children who needed help to continue their education. Today with the help of our generous donations through our shop, we sponsor 7 children in total. If you would also like to assist, you can purchase one of our ethik calico bags for $5 and $3 will go into our sponsorship fund.
