Our mission is to generate dignified employment. As a result, all of the money from your purchase is used in one of two ways:
Empowerment: The percentages vary for each partner center, but we only source quality products from centers that support survivors of exploitation and marginalization with comfortable living wages (higher than fair wage standards), a safe working environment, and programs for continued growth and development.
Growth: Dignified employment is behind every item sold. The more products we sell sourced from our partner centers, the more jobs they are able to provide.
Rather than a donation model where we would “give a fish,” we have chosen to partner with those who are “teaching to fish”. The goal is to provide tools to the vulnerable to make a sustainable living that is financially stable without a need for handouts.
