Nectar reaches out to families, encourages them to send women to work. The average education of our artisans is about sixth grade. Our artisan development programs provide supplementary training in employable trade skills as well as life skills. Trade skills are provided in jewelry crafting as well as in industries such as agricultural crops, wooden handicrafts and others that are suitable to their background. Our life mentorship modules include literacy classes, business education, intellectual growth, hygiene and nutrition, financial planning and personality development.
Talented artisans worldwide face similar barriers to progress: lack of knowledge of efficient production techniques, international quality standards, global design trends, and access to quality materials, equipment, financing and world markets. Our artisans are part of the Nectar Nectar family and we work hand in hand with them to tackle these constraints.
