GreenHeart Foundation Santa Barbara

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

The GreenHeart Foundation (formerly the Bhutan Cultural Preservation Foundation) is a hands-on humanitarian organization that has been active since the 1980's in the Himalayas and Southeast Asia with two primary intentions:

- To help impoverished Laotian villagers obtain sustainable livelihoods by reigniting the lost art of traditional textile weaving, providing young girls with an alternative to sex slavery

- To bring increased awareness to the legacy of unexploded bombs (UXO) dropped during the Vietnam War era which continue to kill innocent Laotians every day

The GreenHeart Foundation is also dedicated to traditional cultural preservation through the promotion of the women's handmade arts of weaving and embroidered textiles. Our goal is to benefit Lao rural mountain artisans economically and socially and thereby enhance the wider community.
