Beginning in 2002 with a handful of women in the squatters area of Antipolo City, Philippines, PWP has since expanded into Ban Nam Kem, Thailand- Barathapurham, India- and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. As you support #GivingTuesday your dollars will be used to build a safe working environment in India. Hundreds of women have been given a hand-up rather than a hand-out as they have become aware of their own self reliance through micro-enterprise training. Educational scholarships for youth help support hundreds of children in school as well as thousands of boxes containing much needed food, educational supplies, hygiene kits and books to remote provinces. And last (but not least), from eyeglasses, to sewing machines to dental work, PWP has supported dozens of individuals with much needed in country medical assistance. #GivingTuesday is a way to say Thanks and a way to give to those in need worldwide!
While PWP is dedicated to disadvantaged women in developing countries, it is truly the socially minded woman in America who has enabled life long change to occur. Being socially-minded and wanting to know where her accessories are made, what they are made from and who will actually benefit by her spending dollars, thousands of lives are improved worldwide. This is the beauty of a social-impact organization. When a product is purchased from PWP, over 72% is used to impact the life of another human being on the other side of the world. The remaining 28% is used here in America for marketing and raising awareness.
