I first heard about Fashion & Compassion through my co-worker, Ande Truman. She will be traveling with the group to Uganda in October, and I decided to check out their website. They work with women in America, South America and Africa who are trying to overcome their circumstances and work towards a brighter future.
Here’s a video that explains a little bit more about what the organization.
Along with your purchase (100% of the donation goes back to the ministry and artisans who created the items) You receive a card about the women who created your items.
Florence hopes to be able to build a permanent home for her family, and has purchased land in the Acholi Quarters slum thanks to the income she’s received from the bead project.
Ayaa hopes to reunited her five children with their relatives so they can learn how to live in a village as a family instead of in a slum.
