Helping Hands, Yangon: in and around Myanmar

Today I got to visit the awesomest place in Yangon (so far... I've only been here for a month =)  But in any case, it is pretty cool.

Helping Hands is a non-profit establishment where young adults, women and men come to work with fair wages and medical care so locals can have opportunity of life and education.

There are men and boys working outside with beautiful wooden furniture with beautiful craftsmanship.  Inside the building there were ladies sewing, quilting and embroidering cute fun very practical things for sale such as clothing, bags, accessories for all ages.  Fabric choices and designs are worth so much!!!

All the sales proceeds goes back to the shop for materials and back to the locals who work here.  Helping hands is moving this weekend and will have a showroom downtown.  Location to be updated as soon as I find out because I will be visiting them again!

Currently their items are being sold at Pomelo, which is a shop that hosts all non-profit vendors such as Helping Hands.  I haven't been there but I'm told people can't bring too much money because they end up spending it all!  =)

Please give some love and support fair trade by purchasing these items.  They make wonderful gifts and souvenirs.
