These beautiful prayer flags are designed and stitched by Nepali survivors of human trafficking who have been trained in the Harambee Arts therapy methodology. These amazing women are now leading workshops throughout Nepal for survivors and girls at risk.
Each brilliantly colored flag features different fabric and an inspiring word in both English and Nepali: faith, love, grateful, together, imagine, creative, peace, believe, honest, courage. The entire flag length measures 72 inches long. The bright and beautiful fabric flags vary; we'll select a lovely set for you.
Harambee Arts partners with Shakti Samuha, the first organization globally that was founded and staffed by survivors of human trafficking. Most of the women who work for Shakti Samuha experienced forced prostitution, some sold as young as seven or eight years of age. While struggling to reclaim their own lives, they reach out to support and empower other trafficking survivors by providing desperately needed shelter, legal aid, vocational training, and counseling.
The origin of prayer flags dates back thousands of years to the ancient Bön of Tibet, who used colored pieces of cloth in healing ceremonies. Traditionally, prayer flags are used to communicate peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Tibetans believe prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread goodwill and compassion into all pervading space.
