RYF 2014: Spe­cial (Löscher) Fam­ily Prize: Renu Shakya

Happy Grandma

Happy Granma project inspired by Renu Shakya (Nepal) and sup­ported by Loescher Fam­ily has got off to a good start.




The aim of the project is to pro­mote the tra­di­tional pro­fes­sion of old women of Nepal via Youth Vol­un­teer and to enhance the well-​being of older women using their tra­di­tional knowl­edge of crafts­man­ship. This is the way how Grandma from a city called Sid­hipur, uses her tra­di­tional crafts­man­ship. She makes mats, chairs, bas­kets, slip­pers and tra­di­tional uten­sils using straw which she gets after har­vest­ing rice from her own field. This activ­ity goes along with an ori­en­ta­tion pro­gram that was launched on 11 Dec 2014 in order to share the project to youths of Kath­mandu val­ley and enroll the ones who are truly inter­ested. Renu has already received many pos­i­tive responses from youth mem­bers and you can join the project as well!
