I wanted to share this organisation with you all.
Leaving a life of prostitution and moving into rehabilitation, women in Ethiopia oftentimes find it a struggle to gain work in the economical world; thus finding themselves trapped and returning to a life of prostitution for sustainability. Live FashionABLE provides work for women in the form of retail production, helping them become orientated into the economical world.
Here is a little bit about the organisation:
" 'Women At Risk' is an organization we have partnered with to rehabilitate former sex workers. This work requires not only getting these women off the streets, but also providing them counselling and helping them find alternate means of income – this is why we created fashionABLE. Our ultimate goal is to help these women become healthy and productive members of society.
Headquarters for scarf production are in Addis Ababa, the capital city. Scarves are made by women in the program, as well as other Ethiopian sources that include women and men, to help meet demand. While being supported by those sources, fashionABLE is continually funding the training of more women in order to employ as many women as demand will allow. All the while, we are meeting the mission that your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf continues to create sustainable business for more women in Africa.
Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business in Africa. We are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and our main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women. That means that your purchase of a scarf creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy.So our strategy is two-fold. We work with women to help them start small business cooperatives, and we partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with fair wages and fair hiring practices."
