THE ARTISAN : TAYO COLLECTIVE
Located in the Philippines, TAYO Collective works with 15 female artisans who are survivors of the sex trade. The women range in age from 20 to 30 years. Through TAYO Collective, they have access to safe housing, dignified employment, nutrition and health training, personal development programs, and a tuition-free college education. Every piece of TAYO Collective’s fair trade jewelry purchased at The Little Market empowers the artisans to break the cycle of poverty and permanently escape the sex trade.
