PROJECT "ONE HANDBAG, ONE SMILE"
Olvido Madrid has a special conexion with Nepal. Differents paths and a personal project had guied us to "Sonrisas y Montañas" NGO, to whom we want to collaborate giving anually the 5% of each purchase you make to help Dawa and Kami´s orphanage located in Kathmandú.
After traveling to Nepal with our first project "we do not forget Nepal" we met this lovely marriage. A natural disaster changed their lives and had to move from their village in Langtang lands to Kathmandu, where they hosted four orphaned children from the same region. Currently the family live in the bottom of a small house and the couple take care of Jun Maya (4), Nima Dewan (5), Sanjeet (6) and Nima Nurpu (7). Its four older children also live with them and regularly sleep in the school, so their parents can take care of the younger children.
This is possible thanks to small donations coming from Spain. We, after living with them and feel part of their little great family, have decided to join their cause.
HOW CAN I COLLABORATE?
For every purchase you make at our website & showroom you will be working with the education and care of these children. Now they are four, but little by little more children will come. After our first visit, Dawa and Kami asked us to continue helping them, until Jun Maya, Nima Dewan, Sanjeet and Nima Nurpu could finish school and were self-sufficient. That's why we created this second project: "a handbag, a smile" so you could support us, involuntarily, in a good cause.
HOW MUCH MONEY IS NEEDED?
Dawa and Kami need an average of 6.000€ per year to pay all expenses of his new family. Olvido Madrid bring their bit and will donate 5% of their sales to the NGO "Sonrisas y Montañas", which will manage and will forward the money to the bank account of Dawa and Kami in Nepal. We know that many contributions like ours make Dawa and Kami can take care of these children, and we thank you in advance to all new "ladies Olvido" for your contributions. Because little by little everything is much easier.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY MONEY IS DESTINATED TO HELP THIS LITTLE ORPHANAGE IN NEPAL?
Neither "SONRISAS Y MONTAÑAS" and OLVIDO MADRID earn any money running this project. This is an altruistic collaboration between a non-profit association created by a group of friends that raise money to help others through sports events and a Spanish handbags brand born from a new idea and lots of effords. All money raised in this action will go entirely to help the little orphanage.
