Ganesh Himal Trading encourages all of its producer partners to keep their children in school and has worked diligently over the years to make this happen. Since the late 1980s, they have contributed to the “Girl Child Education Fund” of the Association for Craft Producers (ACP). In 2012, Ganesh Himal Trading introduced the Power of 5 campaign to raise additional funds for this program, bringing in over $35,000 between 2012-2014. Also, in 2014, they established the Conscious Connections Foundation (CCF) to further support fundraising efforts to combat child labor through access to education. To date, CCF has raised over $125,000 for a Power of 5 endowment that will ensure access to K-10th grade for over 180 children of producer partners every year, for generations to come. Additionally, CCF has expanded its education efforts to secondary schooling to ensure older children are not involved in child labor and have every opportunity to fulfill their dreams.
