Sarmila Damai turned 24 this year. She is the mother of a six-year-old son who lost her husband to jaundice. She was forced to leave the house by the in-laws. She somehow got connected to a church in Kathmandu and found out about Higher Ground. She is a very strong-willed single mother who works hard for her growing son. Despite the loss of her husband and family’s support, now Sarmila is an independent woman who can provide for both of them.

Higher Ground Crafts is a social enterprise established with a vision to rescue ‘at-risk’ women and youth who are economically marginalized, vulnerable, and prone to trafficking. We do this by providing redemptive employment opportunities, and marketable skills through our non-profit wing, Higher Ground Community Development Nepal.
Higher Ground Crafts, being self-sustaining through its business operation, pours out its financial resources to our non-profit wing. Through this non-profit, we advocate for individuals, promote awareness of human rights issues, and give training about health, parenting and life skills. We also provide scholarships for at-risk youth, counseling for abuse, trafficking, and trauma victims. We also have a safe home for women and families struggling with being widowed, transitioning and of abusive or vulnerable situations.
