Note from designer Jen Hansen
I'm so excited to share that we've made a $15,000 contribution to Her Future Coalition in support of their Red Light Resource Centers in Kolkata, India. Click here for more details on their organization and this program. I look forward to updating you on upcoming brand giving initiatives on this page in future!
Our current focus is Her Future Coalition’s Red Light Resource Centers in Kolkata, India: Sonagachi and Bowbazar.
In 2018, we contributed $15,000 in sales profits to fund a full year of programming at the centers, which includes education, vocational training, and employment programs, as well as free child care and safe shelter to 250 women and children in two red light areas.
The Centers’ employment programs provide training in jewelry design and fabrication, giving women the skills and the necessary support to earn a livelihood outside of prostitution, to overcome extreme poverty and social stigma, and to support their children. Their jewelry program is a complete pathway to independence and dignity. These Centers train and employ survivors to become professionals and entrepreneurs, leaving poverty behind forever.
Due to political violence in Nicaragua, we have postponed our efforts to build a school with buildOn. We will reassess the project in 2019 and look forward to breaking ground on the school in the near future.
