How exactly does your purchase change lives?

Empowering
Women

Statistically, when a woman is empowered out of poverty, she lifts 4 more people with her. When women have safe and dignified jobs, whole communities thrive.

Keeping Families Together

Most children in orphanages have living relatives but were given up out of desperation. Your purchase helps a mother provide for her children and dream for the future.

Fighting
Trafficking

People are less vulnerable to human trafficking when they are earning a living wage, and many trafficking survivors find healing in their supportive work environments.
