We have enjoyed a very close and rewarding relationship with the Nepali people since our first visit in 1976, moving there in 1981 to establish a health care facility and teach, to launching Elevation Trade in 2011.
We have imported everything from the highest quality art works and gemstones to herbal ointments and incenses. Our personal and business relationships with Nepal in particular have improved standards of living and built villages. We have seen and shared first hand in the suffering and setbacks which economic necessity imparts to individuals, especially women, children and the socially disenfranchised.
We continue our commitment to the artisans and craft-people we have met over the years, and more recently we have encouraged innovations in the “Green” movement and sustainable practices. We are truly humbled by the outstanding efforts these kindly global villagers have made to help rescue our shared planet on which they themselves have had very little negative environmental impact.
