Your purchase supports women in need! Yay!
We started with fair trade products created by destitute women living with disabilities in Pakistan (see video below) and now we are also working with refugee women living in Istanbul.
The two fabulous non-profits Aasra is working with:
Darakhshan Resource and Training Centre for Girls and Women with Disabilities was established in 1990 as a Rehabilitation Project. The main objective of the project is to enable this severely disadvantaged section of the community to become income generators and self-reliant members of their families.
Small Projects Istanbul is a grass-roots NGO operating in Turkey to support refugees displaced by conflict in the Middle East and North Africa Regions. The Community Education Center is where local families and individuals come to participate in a variety of weekly programs designed to help them settle into their new lives and access the best opportunities possible to pave the way for a brighter future. SPI works to rebuild lives through sustainable grassroots initiatives, including a women’s craft collective, an array of language classes, as well as other activities such as music, art, and computer programs.
