Fair Trade Artisans: Nepal: Kumbeshwar Technical School:In Nepal, a stratified caste-based Hindu society, social contact between people of different castes is the exception rather than the rule. In response to the poverty and class discrimination he saw in his neighborhood, the founder of Kumbeshwar Technical School built an orphanage, a primary school, and a technical school used to train future carpet weavers, knitters, and carpenters.
