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 worked in Nepal to do so. When Elegantees began, our dream to employ survivors of human trafficking was the leading motivator. The seamstresses are working with a positive source of income, an independence, and dignity that restores lives. Our mission is to create more jobs. Each purchase gets us closer to that!
