Due to vulnerability from extreme poverty, Nepal ranks high as a source country for sex trafficking. To combat trafficking, we provide sustainable employment for adult survivors and those at risk. Lives are then restored through jobs, one elegant tee at a time.
Since 2011, we have partnered with Our Daughters International to do so. When Elegantees began, our dream to employ survivors of human trafficking was the leading motivator.
Through the sewing center that was built a decade ago, about 20 daughters are making the clothing for my brand. They are working with a positive source of income, an independence, and dignity that restores lives.
The waiting list in Nepal is between 300-500 women who desire to work for Elegantees. Our mission is to create more jobs. Each purchase gets us closer to that!
