About

Sharif’s venture, HCEE, commits to alleviating poverty and gender disparity in Mude, Nepal, through a self-sustaining herb cooperative that encourages equal participation of both men and women.  Apart from covering the operational cost, ~50% of the revenue from this venture will be used to develop and maintain local infrastructures, primarily in education and health.  This venture follows on the string of Nepalese ventures founded by Fellows who are working to revitalize entire towns through multi-faceted approaches, usually catalyzed – as in this case – by an agriculture and women’s empowerment component.
