Honoring Mothers

Celebrating Mother's Day

Every day is “Take Your Child to Work Day” at our empowerment projects in Uganda and Peru. Over 93% of the women we employ are mothers, and we build childcare into our program. We intentionally designed our program to foster the children's development through socialization and play, and the ladies we work alongside to know their children are being cared for while they work. With every product you purchase, you can know that you are not only supporting the women we employ, but their families and children as well.

In honor of Mother's Day, we are sharing some of the hopes and dreams our beneficiaries carry for their children.
