During a class project in 2017, we were tasked with finding a sustainable product to sell. This was when Ana, a Nepali native and one our original student co-founders, introduced the team to the idea of a Nepali hemp backpack.
The bags were hand-crafted so they created a ton of local jobs and were environmentally friendly by using organic hemp... they were perfect!
Flash forward 5 years later and Jack is the last of the original students to continue the business. He has since grown the brand across the world and now works with the most established and socially responsible hemp backpack makers in all of Nepal.
Here's a few programs our partners offer their employees:
- Free Daily Lunch
- 15 Minutes Daily Meditation
- 10 Days Paid Annual Vacation
- Occupational Heath and Safety Training
