Betterfelt is Fair Trade Importer.

It has from the beginning been our motivation to create a woodworking environment for our employees, and fair salary is basic.

Our artisans, (almost all female), is having a salary equivalent to a male skilled worker or public teacher i Kathmandu. She has 34 paid holydays and an extra months salary during their festivals in the autumn. 
Finally she has a 10% saving on top of her salary and the right for 45 days paid maternity leave.

Meet the makerGiven that Betterfelt.com has already formulated a vision that clearly tells all of its employees which company they work, we recognize that the living conditions and opportunities for unskilled and women workers in Nepal are more limited than they are in the rest of the world.

Therefore, we also recognize the need for extra help to our employees in certain aspects of life, even if such assistance is rarely considered to be the employer's responsibility.

Thus we pay a contribution to the education of our employees' children. This means that all employees have received a cash grant for each child equivalent to the cost of public school.

But not only the children should be educated. We as employers need trained staff, and especially English-speaking staff, so we can communicate with the whole staff, not just management. Therefore, we offered free English courses for all staff. For those who can not read and write, we offer training in these skills first.
