“Traditions Fair Trade cherishes its relationship with Ganesh Himal. Not only have the wide range of products offered been of very high quality and appeal to our customers, but the commitment to their partnering producers in Nepal is evident from their ongoing collaborative product development, their support of the needs and social programs of those producers, and their personal connections with so many of those artisans. And we know we will always have the kind of attention and personal service from Ganesh Himal that makes it very easy to conduct business with them.” -Traditions Fair Trade

Our salutation to you and the team! We admire your zeal and untiring efforts.  We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you and all those kind hearted individuals who have actively canvassed for this noble cause and contributed towards our Child Education Program. Your support has demonstrated your faith in us and enabled us to provide our children their basic right- Right to Education.  With your generous support we have been able to double the Education Allowance from this year.

Ganesh Himal is one of our top-selling partner vendors year round. They have a terrific array of scarves to fill out the selection provided by Villages and there are many popular favorites that we continue having to reorder such as their bike tube purses, stud earrings, and beautifully basic woven hats and garments. They have artisan information readily available on their website, are meticulous in meeting orders, and provide excellent customer service. I am more than happy to recommend them or speak with any stores interested in further information. -Jess Bowen, Austin Ten Thousand Villages

“€œGanesh Himal & Association for Craft Producers (ACP), both organizations stared business in the same year and share a strong bond and long term partnership. ACP highly appreciates Ganesh Himal’€™s untiring effort of promoting Nepali handmade articles for the upliftment of Nepali artisans. Ganesh Himal is one of our key partners in social development projects since the beginning and our relationship goes far beyond than just buying and selling relationships. Ganesh Himal has been actively supporting our various fair trade projects primarily Child Education Allowance.

As incentive to excel, ACP supports the three most outstanding students for a fifth year. ACP has been able to play a key role in providing education to over 400 children till date.
