Since 2007, more than 5,500 people have earned income to make more than 2,000,000 sheets of paper for their gift sets over the course of their partnership, which means 5,885 children have been able to attend school, and 2,490 families have been able to buy food and clothing, repair their homes, and plan for the future. More working mothers have become role models for their daughters, and families have their needs met for happier and healthier lives. And because the lokta bark paper they purchase is Certified Wildlife Friendly®, it helps protect 42,000 acres of forest; which means communities can coexist with the Red Panda and endangered Snow Leopard.
