Maximize socialeconomic impact
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and the STUDIOJUX.ORG foundation’s purpose is to contribute to the economic improvement of Nepal. We supported the start of a factory in Kathmandu to maximize our social-economic impact in one of the poorest countries in the world. The following numbers offer an insight into the challenging circumstances:
+ Approximately 25% of the Nepali population, over 7 million people (!), live below the poverty line;
+ Approximately 35% of the children in Nepal are employed. In our factory, we only work with adult employees and we select suppliers that do the same;
+ There are no very poor facilities such as water, electricity, and sanitation. Depending on the season, a running factory will have access to electricity for only approximately six hours a day.
Since our establishment in 2013, we have supported several projects. Just click on one of the four projects to find out more.
