Just the beginning...
GuruNanda’s mission to provide the best essential oils on planet earth for reasonable prices is just the beginning. We also take proactive measures to empower farming communities around the world.
The first thing we look for is the locations where our source plants flourish. We then work directly with the farming communities, cut out the middlemen, and provide the farmers with a fair trade price.
This helps farmers succeed on a larger scale, empowering them to support their families and strengthen their communities. Thanks to these close relationships with our farmers, we attain generational knowledge, insights, and techniques that have been passed down over hundreds of years.
We specifically choose locations where we can make a positive impact on the social, economic, and environmental aspects of the community. This gives us the opportunity to help communities rise above poverty and promote overall economic development.
How is it Done?
Through GuruNanda’s partnerships with farming communities, we are able to create ethical, sustainable employment in underdeveloped regions. These collaborations lead to better income security and economic growth for the local society.
GuruNanda and its farmers collaborate in order to improve the quality of working conditions and keep farmers happy. Part of the reason why we are able to get the best essential oils on planet earth is that we provide our farmers with a fair payment. By working together, we create a progressive ecosystem of happy farmers, happy communities, and ultimately, happy customers.
GuruNanda has been building communal relationships for years. Along the way, we’ve discovered different ways we can build partnerships that help to support those in need. For example, GuruNanda is a current supporter of:
Vitamin Angels: This organization provides life-saving vitamins to mothers and to children under five years old that are at risk of malnutrition. They empower those at risk of malnutrition to prevent disease, helping to create a healthier world.
Akshaya Patra: This is the world’s largest NGO-RUN mid-day meal program serving wholesome lunch to over 1.6 million children in 13,839 schools across 12 states in India.
FPID Foundation for Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases: The FPID was established in the US to support the education, early diagnosis, genetic counseling, therapy, and research of PID in both India and the U.S. The foundation supports many charity activities across the US, India, and has established FPID centers in India.
