      Great question Allessandra. A job is just the beginning of empowerment in our opinion. We couple a fair and consistent wage with a 3 year education curriculum, and one-on-one mentorship with indigenous staff members. We believe true empowerment to be women graduating from our programs with the skills, resources, and knowledge to lead their own self-reliant futures.

    You guys rock - have been a huge fan since discovering you last year. Your approach is fundamentally challenging the "sourcelessness" of too much of our fashion/clothes/apparel. Thank you!

      Exactly Grant! It's important for us to think about the impact our purchases have on the people who make them.
