Celebrating 10 Years of Partnership
Looking back, looking forward, and celebrating all we've learned
Nearly 11 years ago, before Mahila Partnership was created, co-founders Angela and Julie forged a partnership with Eco-Organic Nepal founder Sabita Aryal in her quest to reduce landslides and destruction in the rural regions surrounding Kathmandu, Nepal.
The Organic Valley was created to fortify the land that was vulnerable each year to the monsoon season with the added benefit of improvement in the food availability to the villages nearby. Nearly ten years, multiple monsoon seasons, and one major earthquake later, the harvests still come and the communities are stronger than ever.
Our founders and board members travel to Nepal at the end of February, bringing back photos and stories from the villages we serve. We're looking forward to seeing the produce they have growing currently, hearing their stories of how they have rebuilt, and learning some of their recipes!
