If you’re looking for an ethical gift this Christmas, have a look into the Ethical Enterprises project that helps to empower women and young people in the Darjeeling region of India and Nepal.
The income generation project is run by Mary Ward International, an organisation that supports the Loreto nuns’ work in the areas of education, social justice and health, in impoverished tea-picking communities.
Villagers create beautiful handmade paper and woven products to be sold locally and in Australia, with the money going to them and their communities.
Angus Randall spoke to Felicity Costigan from Mary Ward International Australia.
