Danfe Stores Open: Go Local. Get Local
Go Local, Get Local. That’s the motto Danfe Store stands by and promotes. As a Social Enterprise of SAATH (www.saath.org.np); Daanfe was designed for girls affected by the devastating earthquake that shook Nepal in 2015. Instead of being bogged down by the calamity SAATH has helped 35 girls from four districts of Nepal (Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa, Kavre and Makwanpur) to get back on their feet. Since most of these girls are school drop-outs and some have never attended schools, they were given advanced tailoring training for 10 months which got the ball rolling.
Focusing on the concept of promoting Nepali made goods for both local and international markets, Danfe inaugurated its outlet in Jhamsikhel, Lalitpur on Friday.
Set out to be a sustainable social enterprise, Danfe is a strong step towards the idea of going local. The shop has tot bags, canvas bags, coats, outers, dresses and hoodies and t-shirts for both men and women and kids wear.
