JeevanKala is HHC's line of handmade handicrafts, made by villagers from the Tipling and Sertung villages of Ruby Valley region.

One of HHC's most important income generation activities has been to promote the international sale of locally manufactured handicrafts under the name JeevanKala. This initiative, now in its fourteenth year, has allowed hundreds of families to earn living wages. The net proceeds from all sales of JeevanKala goods go toward funding for HHC's other charitable programs in Nepal.

All net proceeds from the handicraft sales are used to fund primary health care, medical and educational projects, giving to those involved in the production process a sense of pride that comes by helping and sustaining many others, in even greater need than themselves.
