I come from Ramechhap, Nepal.
Meena Gurung who is now 43, has been working with Manushi for last 26 years. She lost her father at a very small age and her mother eloped with other man leaving her alone. She was brought to Kathmandu by her maternal uncle. She was able to study until grade 5 due to her economic condition. She joined Manushi at the age of sixteen. At that time, she knew nothing about crafts. Slowly, she started learning about crafts, skills in chemical & natural dyeing-tying technique. Her desperation for learning has become a work of pleasure. She is now Dyeing supervisor at dyeing department. Today, products made by skills of Meena is exported to different international market. Manushi is glad to have supported hard working women like Meena Gurung.
