We aim to empower women worldwide by providing them with our UNLOCK WE program which accelerates their skills, income, and most importantly their dignity to thrive.
WE; an acronym for Women Entrepreneurs.
After years of operating and working with small, female cooperatives in the developing world, our partners & teams have been able to gain a unique insight. We know that women face different challenges in business than men do. It’s an important area that deserves more resources.
Many of these women lack the skills and business training necessary to gain the attention of the mainstream fair trade movement and their local markets are often limited. While there is progress for some, moreover, their efforts often do not help the women break the generational cycle of poverty.
The UNLOCK WE program provides training, mentorship, and access to customers for female artisans in developing countries so they can increase their earning and retain their dignity.
