since 2013, we have created
over 1.25 million hours
of dignified work
Women fall through the cracks — they earn less than men, they work in precarious, sometimes unsafe, conditions and Covid continues to reinforce these inequalities. Our solution to global gender gaps in safe and dignified employment is simple: We connect underserved and marginalized women with opportunities for safe, empowering, and sustainable ways to make a living wage and to support themselves and their families.
Through our partnerships with artisan and producer groups, we develop unique products that honor local customs and traditions and connect artisans with a global marketplace of consumers, creating opportunities for skill building, financial empowerment, and independence.
1 This figure was calculated with the aid of a proxy and using data collected from each artisan and producer group specific to its technique and production time. The reporting period begins in June 2013 and concludes on June 30, 2021.
2 This number spans from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 and does not include the hours generated by 15 groups. At the time of writing, we had not been able to calculate these hours.
