Our Mission, to Protect Animal Welfare and Security of Herder Livelihood
through Maintaining the Integrity of Fragile Rangeland Ecosystem.
Our Heritage's our future ... ♥
Nomadic herders have been grazing Cashmere goats on Mongolia’s rangelands for over 4.500 years, and they now produce about 40% of global worldwide Cashmere Fiber.
Sustainable development of Nomadic Livestock Husbandry is the basis of securing the integrity of Environmental well-being of Mongolia, for it constitutes 70% of total land territory management, and providing domestic processing industry with Sustainable Raw Materials, to continue Securing Job Places for half of the population; women moreover account to 70% of the workforce at processing mills.
Women account to 70% of the workforce at processing mills, and are increasingly managing Nomadic Herders' Households & Cooperatives incomes and trainings to Sustainable Herding.
By granting Nomadic Herders a premium price for their certified “Sustainable Cashmere” we build their economic well-being, preventing new herder generations from moving to city slums, ensuring they’ll be able to carry their precious Nomadic Heritage Traditions for generations to come.
