My work has given me the ability to contribute to the financial needs of the family and not rely solely on my husband’s income. It’s also given me a stronger purpose in life and sense of importance
I used to work in the fields to support my family but thanks to my experience of using handlooms to make Haku Patasi (a traditional dress of Newar girls) I was able to get a job at NPI-Collection. Within a week I learned to weave Pashmina. I enjoy my work a lot more than growing vegetables.
I never imaged that I would be able to have a well-educated son when I came to Kathmandu. Now my son is studying for a BSc. I can reflect with pride on what I and my family have achieved.
I came here to Kathmandu a year ago to continue my studies without the financial support of my parents. After completing 12th grade I am now planning to continue my studies, like many other colleagues in the company, by going to college in the morning.
I value contributing to the expenses of educating our daughters, and having skills over and above those needed for household chores.
I recently completed my studies but now it’s my wife’s turn to study. Working at Guru supports our family: my commitment was recognised with a prize as ‘best employee’ last year.
I feel proud to say that I have my own small but cosy home and provide the principle income for our family of five. I enjoy my work because of the team spirit among colleagues and the friendly environment at the workplace.
After completing a BSc in Apparel and Fashion Design I have been actively involved in designing products to meet the exacting demands of international customers. I feel proud that my designs are appreciated by customers of many different countries.
