Day 9: Shopping with Purpose
Women in developing worlds spend 80% of their earnings on their family. When we invest in women we invest in children. We invest in entire communities. We invest in sustainable change.
I'm grateful for companies like Krochet Kids who are working in Uganda (and now Peru) to empower women to care for themselves and their families. Confession: I spent way too much time this morning on the Krochet Kids website and was overcome with emotion several times. Maybe it was early and I needed more coffee to think and respond like a logical human being - or maybe these women's stories and their connection to Krochet Kids are extremely moving.
We provide a job so that women can meet the present needs of their families. We educate them so that they develop beyond the need for outside aid. We provide mentorship to help each lady plan a unique and sustainable career path for the future. -- Krochet Kids
