WELL stands for Women Empowered through Local Livelihood. The primary goal of WELL is to empower local village women with skills to build, manage and maintain self-sustaining units producing hand-made art and accessories from recycled newspaper. The women receive training, guidance and support in product development, market and team management, and personal development.

The Wellpaper team is the service provider organ for the WELL women. The team consists of founder Danny and friends from different backgrounds and nationalities.

Over time, the women’s groups have developed into autonomous units, making their own business decisions towards their goal of financial independence. Some of the WELL women are conducting the training workshops themselves to reach other local women and small business units.
