BEYOND A STANDARD
The SFA is more than a standard holding body. Through training, workshops and partnerships, we promote collective action to encourage responsible practices and build the resilience of cashmere herders for future change.
With the support of our members, we coordinate a variety of projects to benefit cashmere herders. These projects include fibre sorting and breeding initiatives, conservation of local wildlife, educational opportunities for youth, and sustainability awards for exemplary herders. We also collaborate with a major national bank to provide low-interest loans to herders that meet the requirements of the SFA Cashmere Standard.
We work continuously at national and international levels to form strategic partnerships and bring about sector-wide transformation for cashmere.
