Before we used to just sleep, eat, read the koran, and wait for a husband. Now, we are business women and it feels great.
It makes me happy to know that what I make goes to beautiful women around the world to wear. It feels like I have done something with my life and not wasted it.
I have found a purpose. By what we have made with our hands we are now eating and drinking and there is a future for our kids. If people do not buy what we make, we would have no future.
I was married at age 14. My husband and I were constantly fighting. After having five girls and no boys (a cultural shame), my husband left me. For six months I cried and prayed.
My girls had to pull out of school because there was no money. I had no work and didnt know how to read or write. It is impossible for a woman to go out alone, so we just stayed inside
to be safe. It got so bad that I finally had to go out so I could find work. I searched everywhere.
My eldest daughter is educated and one of her friends started working at the design studio down the street. She took my daughter along one day and they hired her. Soon after someone from the design studio came to visit me and asked if i would also like to start working. They told us to go to Delhi to source materials, but we were afraid to go out of our home. They went with us at first, but now we have the courage and strength to go alone.
Work is going well now and we have many orders. We are all happy and eating now, and finding respect in our community. People who doubted us, are now coming to us for work.
We now have 12 women that we have trained on our own to help us with our work load. We are thankful for the direction our lives have taken, and we want to share that with other women.

we employ those who are lookingto transition out of homelessness
My challenges all started about four or five years ago when the recession was in full swing. In my quest for employment,
I traveled to a few different states: Arizona, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and California.
Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about a place called Chrysalis.
At first I was kind of apprehensive because I had already been to a
few employment agencies that all promised employment, but I was still unemployed and frustrated out of my mind.
I had nothing to lose, so eventually I decided to give Chrysalis a shot. This was my doorway to The Giving Keys, and for this I am extremely grateful. Today I have a job with people I love, and I work in a highly unusual environment that feels like family.
It has been a long journey, but I now consider myself very fortunate to have landed at The Giving Keys doorstep. It has had a huge impact on my life.
Darnell, Engraver for The Giving Keys
The Giving Keys exists to employ those transitioning out of homelessness to make jewelry out of repurposed keys that get sold and shared around the world.
Each key is unique and carries a message like HOPE, STRENGTH, DREAM or COURAGE. When the wearer of the key encounters someone else who needs the message on the key, they give it away and then send us the story of their key being paid forward.

The May Designs brand was started when logo designer, Mica May, couldnt find the perfect notebook.
A graphic designer by trade, she designed a few that were just the right size and were a little more fashion forward than anything she could find.
After a few months of carrying them around, people took notice and wanted to buy them, so she designed and launched a selling her first retail product: May Books.
In the past six years, she has grown the company beyond notebooks into stationery, greeting cards and a brand new line of photo books. May Designs prides itself in making every aspect of their paper design goods fully customizable - including fonts, cover patterns and inside page designs. The notebooks and photo books feature
sewn binding and canvas covers, which makes them extra durable.
The heart of behind each product is allowing customers to create something that makes every day life a little more beautiful. Their goal to empower everyone to be creative and have fun while building something completely unique to them that lets their personality shine through.
May Designs recently relocated their design studio to Austin, TX and their team has grown to a staff of ten.As a wife and mother of three toddlers, Mica is always striving to find the perfect balance between running a business and being a mom. One seamless way shes been able to blend the two is with the Rise School Art Collection of notebooks. Partial proceeds benefit her son Jacksons school, who has Down syndrome.

Sseko Designs uses fashion to provide employment and scholarship opportunities to women pursuing their dreams and overcoming poverty--women like Stella, Sophia and Sharon. These women will not make sandals forever.
They will go on to become doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers, and teachers who will bring change to their country and our world.
These bright young women work with Sseko during the nine-month break between high school and university to produce our line of stunning, handcrafted goods from materials sourced locally in East Africa.
During this time, we require her to save fifty percent of her salary each month for university. At the end of those nine months, Sseko will match
using fashion to empower women
her savings with a 100% university scholarship. We believe that every woman has a dream. When she is given the opportunity to pursue those dreams, we are collectively walking towards a brighter and more just and beautiful world.
In addition to our work in Uganda, we design and source ethically made products from all over East Africa. We believe that good business can be an incredibly powerful force for positive social change.
Sseko products are all made in Africa and create jobs, empower artisans and help end the cycle of poverty by building healthy economies and allow us to reinvest profits back into our programs in Uganda.
As we like to say, every Sseko has a story.
