This is our second order, as we have sold the first “test” order. So many thanks to everyone who has already bought one or more wish ribbons!!! What’s with the wish-bracelet? They are 100 % produced in Nepal by survivors of trafficking and people without hearing. All proceeds will be used for children in Nepal! ..
The plan was a different one, because we wanted to sign our cooperation or rather the framework of our collabortion directly in Kathmandu. And then came Corona. And since it is not clear at the moment whether we can travel to Kathmandu in September, we decided to sign our agreement in Hamburg.
The blockade, which began on 23 September 2015, was an economic and humanitarian crisis that severely affected Nepal and its economy. The background is a dispute between Nepal and India.

We have good news to announce: since 27.04.2020 we are on the “list of fines” for the next 2 years. During this time we should have received at least one allocation of money by then. However, there is also the possibility of an extension before expiry. A big thank you to the district court Tiergarten! Approximately 100 to 120 million euros are donated to charitable organizations.

Madan from Rainbow Volunteer Club and Birgit talk about the notebooks we supported – for the second time by now, the situation in Nepal and their corona awareness and hygiene program. Thanks to all of our donors. You are our engine 🙂 Thanks for supporting and trusting us.
Since 24th of March the Government of Nepal has locked down the country. All schools, colleges, market, industries, cinemas, etc. are closed including restrictions on mobility for the public and businesses. The government has decided to halt the operation of international and domestic flights till May 15 as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19.
Whom to believe: Government or Social media?!? A valuable question no matter where around the world we are, is a question that concerns many people. Birgit & Madan / Berlin & Kathmandu today.
We often tend to take things for granted and as “normal”. Thanks for reminding us that it is not the case. It was a pleasure to have worked with you.
