Many tourists wonder how they can help the world to be a better place while they travel. It’s simple. Supporting the art and craft traditions of such a place as Nepal provides all the benefits of a hand-up instead of a hand-out: Pride to be able to support one’s family, the ability to send one’s children to a better school, the ability to provide security for a family. Providing jobs is one of the best ways to grow an economy while getting the bulk of the money directly into the hands of the local people.
