Supporting Tibet and Nepal

Donating directly to charities on the ground
Since the start of the DharmaShop we have been donating to Tibetan, Himalayan and human right charities, as human rights are at the core of our mission.  While buying directly from artists is by far the best way to directly support the community in Nepal, sometimes funds are urgently needed to help immigrants and refugees worldwide.  


DharmaShop Nepal Earthquake Response: Donate Here

For 16 years we have been traveling to Kathmandu Nepal and have many co-workers and family in Nepal. Our offices, staff and artisans are in Kathmandu and we are in contact with them continuously. The relief efforts from this disaster are going to be ongoing for some time. has already donated thousands to to provide food and water as well as shelter and medical care to those who need it in Nepal. We will also be donating continuously to Nepal relief funds until the crisis is over. Please consider giving to these trusted organizations and keep Nepal in your thoughts.

Our mission is to support Tibetan, Newar and Nepalese artisans and continue to find a market for their hand crafted goods.  We also assist Tibetan and human rights charities with direct financial support.

Many people ask us why our products do not come from Tibet.  It is not an easy answer.  Tibet is not free.  The products sold and made in what was once a free Tibet are often made in Chinese factories and none of the revenue benefits Tibetans.  We employ Tibetan, Newar and Nepalese artisans who have been involved in creating traditional items for generations.  Our goal is to ensure that these traditional crafts remain viable in the 21st century and beyond by continuing to find markets for these traditional goods.  Please visit the sites below to find out how you can help Tibetans in Tibet and living in exile.
