While we produce enough food to feed 60 million people, at least two million Australians rely on food aid each year. On a monthly basis, over 644,000 people now receive food relief each month – and of that number , one quarter are children.

THE INSPIRATION TO FIGHT POVERTY
This social enterprise has key objectives of helping disadvantaged kids get an education as well as helping rural and women’s groups to generate income through local businesses. In particular we aim to help traditional artisans and textile traditions by working with local groups to create beautiful products using traditional techniques. As well as making money for communities it also helps keep these artisan skills alive.
1.) Artisans and women’s groups: the products are made by artisans who live in small villages or small entrepreneurs. They get a fair price and a decent livelihood.
2.) Consumers: People who purchase the products get high quality items that are made with love, care, and are made with sustainable materials.
3.) 100% of the profits go to help disadvantage children for their education.
