At the end of this year I am aiming to launch a Nepalese not-for-profit company, Himalayan Mosaics. The company will give jobs only to girls who are victims of child trafficking. In the short term these will be girls that we have rescued from the circuses. The employees will ultimately work on a Fair Trade basis and their work will provide both good pay and conditions alongside a fair amount of art therapy. I'll turn the profits back into the programmes here in Nepal.
We took a big step forward today with the completion of a mosaic that will be the basis of our logo.
