Stay warm this winter whilst helping to break the cycle of poverty that fuels human trafficking in Nepal.
You know that feeling… the days seem shorter, the sky is perpetually gray, the sun no longer lingers, and hot beverages and knitted layers become the norm. Yep, winter time is coming and love it or hate it, it’s officially time to get ready!
This winter, join me in keeping warm in a much cooler (pun intended), caring, and fashionable way! We have partnered with Trade for Freedom to provide you with the Freedom Scarf– A simple, beautiful and meaningful way to stay warm this winter.
Please watch the video below of my time spent in Nepal with the women making these scarves for you.
So now you know how ordering these scarves empowers women and provides them with a loving environment that affirms their dignity and worth. May I please invite you to take action and make a powerful purchase this winter?
I personally vouch for the people behind the organisations involved in this campaign. I have experienced Melanie and Phil Ewert’s hospitality whilst staying in Nepal and can affirm that they genuinely desire to see marginalized and vulnerable individuals empowered and cared for. Both have been long-term senior humanitarian workers with World Vision.
Put short, you can be confident that your money will go to the right people, and that it will make a difference.
So how does this work?
1) You purchase a Freedom Scarf through Trade for freedom
Perfect for yourself, a friend, your mum, sister, wife, girlfriend, your neighbour’s second-cousin’s-petdog’s-friend’s-niece… (really, who wouldn’t love this)??
This is an exclusive offer. Click here to order your scarf now
2) ‘Beauty For Ashes Nepal’ artisans hand-make your Freedom Scarf
Beauty For Ashes Nepal (BFAN) is an inspiring social business that empowers women through positive, sustainable employment. Each Freedom Scarf is made of 100% up-cycled sari material, meaning no 2 scarves are the same!

3) Profits go towards BFAN breaking the cycle of poverty that fuels human trafficking.
Your purchase creates a demand that gives these women dignified and liberating jobs and goes towards sustainable education and empowerment programs for them and their children. If we hit the goal of buying over 200 scarves, BFAN can provide 2 more women with salaries and benefits for an entire year!
You can learn more about how your purchase contributes to preventing the exploitation of women in Nepal here
Orders close on the 15th of May, and because they are handmade and shipped directly from Nepal, you will receive them 4-6 weeks from placing the order. Get in quick- so you can wear one all through winter!
Thank you for being a part of preventing the exploitation of women in Nepal, and for thinking of others this winter.
