Jawalakhel Handicraft Center, the pioneer
Tibetan Carpet industry in Nepal popularly known as Tibetan refugee camp was set up in
1960 under the initiative of International Red Cross and Swiss Development Corporation
(S.D.C.) then know as Swiss Aid for Technical Assistance (S.A.T.A.) in co-operation with
His Majesty's Government of Nepal. Its main objective is to help the Tibetan refugee to do
something nice and support themselves.
This factory established with a very limited resources
in 1960 has made a tremendous progress fully run by the most active Tibetan community in
Nepal has been providing jobs to hundreds of Tibetan refugee families. The only way to get
rid of poverty is to work hard indeed. So work is the first worship we always honor. We
have worked hard enough to make our fellow Tibetans economically self-reliant. We are
still doing our level best to help the needy and poor of our community. As a matter of
fact it took more than three decades for us to bring this industry into the present stage.
This factory begun with six little shades for few carpet
weavers to work has now a huge weaving hall where hundreds of weavers can sit and weave
carpets in a very comfortable manner.
We are very proud to say that our factory has never used
the child labor. It has rather used the major portion of its earning for the various
community development services such as the medical care of the aged and handicapped
people, food and shelter for the poor and needy, education for the workers' children and
