Projecten in Nepal

By using our products, you help build sustainable local economies,

thereby offering a reliable way for farmers and their families to improve their livelihood.

Samenwerking met lokale boeren


The magnificent biodiversity in the Himalayan region is our most important source of inspiration and ingredients.

In cooperation with our partner organizations in Nepal, we have embarked on the sustainable collection of wild growing Himalayan herbal ingredients, as well as the organic cultivation of herbs used in the CÎME products, such as Palmarosa, Chamomile and Edelweiss.

These herbal ingredients are processed locally. This not only allows the local farmers to sell a more advanced product, but also reduces our ecologic footprint drastically (instead of importing tons of plants, we transport a limited amount of highly concentrated liquids).

Scholenproject


1 product purchased = 1 donation

With every product you purchase, CÎME donates part of the proceeds to the ‘Little Doctors’-project of the charity organization Nepal Trust. 

Nepal Trust is actief in Humla, één van de armste en meest geïsoleerde regio’s van Nepal. De gemiddelde levensverwachting is er 58 jaar en de regio kampt met een kindersterftegraad van meer dan 30%. Eén van de sleutels tot de oplossing van het probleem is de lokale bevolking reeds vanaf jonge leeftijd een basiskennis mee te geven op het vlak van gezondheid, hygiëne en goeie voeding.

Het ‘Little Doctors’-programma

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 het kader van het ‘Little Doctors’-programma worden schoolkinderen uit de regio Humla gedurende vier maanden onderwezen op het vlak van hygiëne, gezondheid, eerste hulp en voeding. Deze kinderen worden als het ware opgeleid tot ‘Little Doctors’ die hun kennis vervolgens kunnen doorgeven aan familie, vrienden en leden van de gemeenschap.

We zijn erg trots om een bijdrage te kunnen leveren aan dit prachtige project!

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.”
