Janakpur Handicraft Center

JHC is a business entrepreneur that believes in doing business socially.Janakpur Handicraft Center (JHC) is one of the leading centers for Mithila arts and crafts established to bring revolution in employment oppertunities for uneducated but very talented women of Mithila. JHC is a business enterpreneur that believes to work socially. The business was originally established in a small town of Nepal named Janakpur over 16 years ago and has undergone various changes in business as well as social strategy. The refined model is to promote art and employment.

What we believe is….
"Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry." — Bill Drayton, CEO, chair and founder of Ashoka, a global nonprofit organization devoted to developing the profession of social entrepreneurship.
 
JHC has built its foundation upon the rich artistic heritage of Maithili women. These women have had to endure severe rest due to practices of their culture. The center provided them their first opportunity to earn as income and to develop artistic creations. 
 
A woman is the soul of a Maithili family. She has to work at home for all the members and at field to help spouse. So if a woman is self empowered she will change the life standard of her own children and give better lives to them and also she will be able to help uneducated Maithili people by giving ideas and knowledge to the neighboring women.
 
JHC does this by:
 
1. Preserving and promoting Nepal's rich artistic Mithila Art.
2. Conducting awareness programs for women
3. Motivating traditional Maithili women artists by providing professional training workshops 
4. Provide financial and empowerment support to women living in remote villages
5. Giving educations regarding women health
6. Events to promote art, culture and tourism in Mithila region
