Our Packaging Partner in New York
Akshar Herbs and Spices partnered with Maryhaven Center of Hope to package our tropical dried fruits.
Maryhaven is a New York-based non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of people with special needs through acts of inclusion, to enable them find purpose in the works of their hands.
Maryhaven offers job training and skilling, and employment opportunities to afford people with special needs an opportunity to earn a paycheck and share their abilities with the greater community.
Education is virtual and empowering children to embrace it is a premium ticket to a bright future. Akshar supports children in the community whose parents are unable to meet all their needs by providing them scholastic materials and scholarships at different levels of education.
Our Producers in Uganda
Akshar also supports and empowers women groups in the community for transformation. One of these groups includes women group in central Kampala that makes hand-made paper bags from the locally produced paper material currently used for packing our herbal tea products. Akshar provides aid and close supervision of the process of making paper bags to ensure that quality is observed to preserve the color, taste, and aroma of the products.
Through supporting children's education and women groups, Akshar has witnessed a tremendous change in the lives of the community with an improved standard of living through sustainable income-generating opportunities.
