With every product you purchase, CIME donates part of the proceeds to the 'Little Doctors'-project of the charity organization Nepal Trust.
Nepal Trust operates in Humla, Nepal's highest and most inaccessible district. The life expectancy rate in the Humla district is 58 years and child mortality rate is over 30%.
The 'Little Doctors'-project
We are convinced that children are able to make a positive change in the living conditions of their family and community and decided to invest in their education.
In the framework of the 'Little Doctors' program, school children of Humla are educated in the fields of personal hygiene, diseases, first aid and nutrition. They are trained to become 'little doctors' who spread health awareness among family and friends within their community.
Nepal Trust has launched the 'Little Doctors'-project several years ago and has witnessed its success:
"There are even examples of students known in the past that identified symptoms of leprosy and tuberculosis within their family and made the local health authorities aware of this. Also trained students contributed to health initiatives in their village after the course (e.g. volunteering in health camps, immunization - and health education campaigns). These are prime examples of the potential spin-off attached to this project." - Nepal Trust
We are very proud to be able to contribute to this wonderful project!
