MEET THE WOMAN BEHIND THE PURSE…
This young artisan from Vietnam is 19 years old. She lives in a poor farming village with her seven-member family. Her family relies on rice farming that is just enough food for her family’s meals and other small expenses. After graduating high school, she decided to become a full-time purse embroidery artisan to help her parents and support her younger siblings with school. She is also working to save money to make her dream of going to college come true!
This is just one of the many success stories that encompasses the impact of Gifts With a Cause. We encourage you to support International Women’s Day by shopping with us, because your purchase empowers women all across the globe.
