Yes Helping Hands  

The aim of Yes Helping Hands is to provide training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Nepal, including individuals who are blind, deaf, or have other barriers to employment. 

Through their work, they have challenged the discrimination artisans in Nepal face by building their confidence and enabling them to enjoy an independent life through fair pay and stable employment.
