SERRV Fall 2012 : Page 2
Handmade with a story. At SERRV, we believe fair trade creates change. Big change. The kind of change that empowers women and children. Laxmi Meharjan (pictured above left with her daughter) excelled at weaving even as a young girl. Her weavings were sold, but she never saw any of the money. Instead, her earnings went to her father and later to her husband. That all changed when Laxmi began working with SERRVís partner in Nepal and she took her earnings into her own hands for the first time in her life. She vowed to use her money to put her daughter Sudha through school. And she did. Sudha earned a Masterís degree in social work. Thatís real change for future generations. Your purchase from this catalog, whether it be a gift or something for yourself, is also a gift for the artisan or farmer who crafted your product. You have the opportunity to change their lives for the better by choosing products from SERRV.
