We don’t get funding from the Nepali government. We would not be where we are today without the support of donors but now the bulk of our funding is raised by our supporters selling our jewellery. Please note that we do not sell jewellery and jewellery cannot be purchased from us in Birtamod. Our supporters sell jewellery to raise funds which they then donate to 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 and beads are hand made by ladies doing it tough in a developing country. We are affected by challenging logistics, intermittent electricity, strikes, 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 loose beads are distributed solely by Paulette Walther at Kazuri Beads
Our jewellery can be purchased at selected galleries and from our onsite shop here.
