We don’t get funding from the Nepali government. The bulk of our funding is raised by our supporters, some wonderful regular donors and an Australian based organisation called Friends of Samunnat, Please note that we do not sell jewellery and jewellery cannot be purchased from us in Birtamod. Friends of Samunnat sells our jewellery to distributors to raise funds for us.
Our friends and supporters are a vital part of the Samunnat family. We share the journey, encourage one another, inspire one another and grow in confidence and hope. There are many ways that you can be part of our story.

Our artists are so proud that the work of their hands gives them independence and enables Samunnat to do what it does. Our jewellery is hand made by ladies doing it tough in a developing country. We are affected by challenging logistics, intermittent electricity, strikes, earthquakes, problems with supply of materials and other issues. In spite of this, we continue to delight many customers who have received gorgeous items in a reasonably timely manner.
Our jewellery can be purchased at selected galleries listed here (scroll down). Information about wholesale is also available on this page.
