Jess was right, I love these cushions. They are from an online store that has just recently kicked off it’s opening.
The materials/products come from Cambodia and a percentage of the profits go back into assisting the women who are involved.
I always find projects like this interesting. Part of me wonders where the profit margin sits. Such as, the 10% goes to the women, the excess profit goes to where? Surely all extra profit isn’t about perpetuating the business? Regardless, it is something.
What a brilliant thing it would be to run something that totally gives back into the people we are trying to help. But then, maybe it isn’t sustainable to run a business that way.
Perhaps I need a reminder that this isn’t all about the money, it is also about improving the quality of life for these women by even just simply providing them something to do that is productive, useful and values their talent.
Anyway, do go and check them out and buy something. I’m going to be having a bit of a further look myself.
We partner with several projects that counsel, train & equip women to overcome the circumstances of poverty, lack of education, sex trafficking & the burden of HIV by providing them with on going care & meaningful vocational training.
This training provides the women with a means of supporting their families, of exiting the sex industry, furthering their education & seeing a hope for their futures.
Through these partnerships it is our hope to support local women & their families, by facilitating opportunities for them to improve the standard of living for themselves, their families & the generations to come.
We strive to undertake all our business dealings with honesty, integrity & transparency.
10% of profits made from the sale of our partners products goes back to their projects to further their work.
