Our partner organization focuses on women’s empowerment and poverty alleviation. They provide women in India with fair-trade work and, should they need it, a safe place to live with their dependents. Each shelter has a physical location where activities are centralized. At the pilot program, in New Delhi, women enter a paid training program where they are taught skills to create high-quality products for the export market. The only entry prerequisite is demonstrated economic need. When the woman completes training and begins to produce for the export market, her pay is increased.

The women are paid whether or not the products sell, and are regularly conferred with to ensure their other key needs are met. One stakeholder/worker is currently being helped to find medical support for her kidney problems. They also actively support the women to ensure that their children are in school. They are aware of each woman’s unique challenges and actively work with them to overcome them together.  

Your purchase DOES GOOD in the lives of WOMEN!  Yay you!
