Artisan Feature: Manju - Design Assistant

Manju was born in the Gorkha district of Nepal and is the eldest of 4 children. As the eldest, she remained at home to look after the family thereby missing out on her education. At age 17 she married a police officer and they moved to Pokhara in the 1990s. Manju started working for WSDO over 20 years ago and trained in both sewing and weaving. Today she assists with the development of new designs and samples. Her work with WSDO helps to pay for her youngest son's education, something she feels very fortunate to be able to do.
