More than Products, More than a Cause…
We aren’t just sourcing some cheap product and selling it to give a percentage to “Charity”. The actual creation and manufacturing of our products IS the method by which we fulfill our mission to empower a socially and economically equal society. We commission the products from local skills development organizations and small businesses to support economic growth from the bottom up. THEN, the profits made from the sale of our products goes straight back into providing more opportunities and commissions for our Creators and into the Social Impact vision through micro-loans, skills and small business development and social good campaigns. This model, in effect, allows the Creators to fund and drive their OWN economic and social development and not be dependent on charity.
