The international headquarters are in Zurich, Switzerland with national headquarters and branches in 18 countries.
As women have a lower social status in Nepal, and they are often dependent and repressed. Since they are married at a very early age and have children, they are therefore excluded from educational opportunities.
They are often abandoned by their husbands, having given birth to a large number of children.
In this situation they are rarely able to support themselves and their children.
Since 1996 ROKPA have been offering apprenticeships for women. They are taught to design and sew clothes as well as other useful articles, which they will later sell. Throughout these courses the women are financially supported by ROKPA.
These cushion covers are bought by us from Rokpa. We fill and then sell them to you.
