Himalaya Candy Project

The Association for Nepal Synapse Self-Reliance Support in Japan (ANSSSJ) has collaborated with the Nepal Tourism Board to produce candy as a souvenir for tourists. The ‘Himalaya Candy’ is now selling at two stores in the Tribhuvan International Airport. All the income generated from this project will go towards the Sarangkot Project. 

Sarangkot Community Building

The Lions Club of Pokhara Annapurna has built a community centre for the Shanti Shamjana Mothers Group. The project was supported by Fordays Co Japan. The aim of building this community centre is to create a space where local women can be trained in making handicrafts. The women will then be able to use the community building as a space to produce local handicrafts, which they can sell to gain an income. The total cost of the project was 2,600,000 rupees.

Sarangkot Village Sewing Class Project

A sewing class is currently been held in the Synapse Work Training Centre (the community hall), which we support financially at the request of the community. The handicrafts will be sold at the Sarangkot Synapse Cafe. The income generated by this cafe will be used to develop Sarangkot and other parts of Nepal as a corporate social responsibility.
