January 18, 2014 - Gave this item to friends as a Christmas gift -- All LOVED it! Charming, well done, and unique.
January 18, 2014 - I loved this set so much that I bought three of them. Beautifully made, whimsical, and exquisitely detailed. I love the fact that it is handmade and fairly purchased and supports local artisans in Nepal (that I just visited in October), a win-win situation. My family adores gifts from this site. My only recommendation is for the colors to be more 'christmasy', green and red, if at all possible.
January 13, 2014 - I purchased this nativity for a little girl I sponsor in India...and I loved it so much that I had to buy more...I got four more at the 50% off price and they are all high quality and come in a lovely box with cheerful confetti inside. Buy this nativity....you won't regret it!
December 27, 2013 - Super cute, perfect for toddlers. My little girl loved being able to pick these pieces up and talk about who each character represented. They stood up fine without falling over.
January 17, 2013 - Cutest nativity scene ever. Gave it to my daughter for Christmas because she loves unusual things. She fell in love with it!!
Artisan: Get Paper Industry
After Bina Sunwar’s husband abandoned her and her children, she was faced with a difficult road. Raised in her home country of Nepal, Bina was from a lower social caste and had never been to school. Undereducated and regarded as “untouchable” due to her status as a single mother, the prospect that she could find a job to support her family was daunting.
Bina found more than a job with Get Paper Industry in 1994; she found reason to hope for the future with their “Send Your Daughter Campaign.” Considered one of the most important social programs of GPI/GWP, this campaign provides scholarships to help send disadvantaged children like Bina’s daughters Maya and Mamta to school. She was determined that her children would not face the same difficulties a lack of education had burdened her with.
As of 2012, Maya is 24, doing her post-graduate work in management, while Mamta is nearing completion of her own degree in management. Both are optimistic about their future and deeply respect their mother’s strong commitment to providing them with an education. They claim that now it is their turn to support her.
