In the aftermath of the earthquake in Nepal, April 25th 2015, KONTRAST Project was born. It started as an initiative to sell jewelry in order to raise money for the NGO – Mountain People. This organization operates on a local level and offers direct help to the people of Nepal. After many long intense conversations on the challenges confronting the combination of development and business, the idea behind KONTRAST Project AS shaped itself into a social business. Parts of the profit from the products sold are spent on carefully chosen projects in Nepal.
The name KONTRAST is about the contrasts in this world. The contrasts can be overwhelming to comprehend, but they show us how intertwined our world is.
