Made in Nepal, Made to Change

Let us explain

    How we work

  • Education
    Educate

    It all starts with education! Our weekly classes provide the opportunity for marginalized women to complete a primary education.

  • Training
    Engage

    Learning by doing! Through HATTIHATTI, women get the chance to learn & practice new tailoring skills.

  • Entrepreneurship
    Empower

    Being independent! Through the HATTIHATTI program, these women are advised and guided in how to start & maintain their own company. They strive towards making a sustainable living.

Philosophy

  • Vision

    Everyone should have the possibility to feel joy and happiness in their daily life. That everyone, despite ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, social/economic situation should have access to equal opportunities.

  • Goals

    Our goal is to educate women from marginalized communities in Nepal to become entrepreneurs. Through our program we provide classes in English, Math, Business economy along with practical training within advanced tailoring. Not only is this a program for learning, it is also a platform for teaching and giving.

  • So why the elephants?

    Hatti means elephant in Nepali. Elephants are extraordinary creatures with many good qualities. With their big hearts, they live in a herd and always take care of each other.

    Even though elephants and tailoring do not have a lot in common we strive to use the same qualities in the way we run our organisation.

    Hatti Hatti has created a safe heaven for women within the marginalised communities to have a fair opportunity and feel empowered, this makes me proud and extremely appreciative with the organisation. To able to witness the work of the organisation in person was a very good opportunity to see all the hard work that goes in making and preparing the the products for Hatti Hatti. I am very grateful and I appreciate the time I have spent with the Hatti Hatti team as they took me and considered me as one of their own family members. Though I was here for a short period of time, I have developed many new helpful skills learnt from the tailors. Everyday was a new challenging day with fun and interesting ideas to develop. I cherish the time I have spent with the team and admire each and every individual working at Hatti Hatti as they all aspire to be a strong independent women. I would like to thank all the sisters for pleasant time and giving me the golden opportunity to work with you.

    I feel so lucky and proud to have been a part of the HattiHatti team. Being able to watch these girls grow and develop their skills has showed me how much of a difference HattiHatti makes for those who need it the most. For this reason, my time here will always hold a special place in my heart.
