I just wanted to share this amazing program called the Full Circle Exchange with you on this chilly winter night. I thought it might warm you all up from the inside. Such an amazing thing this program is. One of those little programs that helps restore your faith in humanity. Their mission is to empower women and whole communities to rise above poverty through economic opportunities that are sustainable and dignified. Here is a little introduction (The colours and scenery are so vibrant).
The lovely and talented Melody Ross is teaming up with them to design a collection for the exchange. She will be heading to Manila to teach “her SOUL RESTORATION curriculum as part of the Full Circle Women’s Empowerment Initiative to the girls in the Hope House as well as providing hands on training and skills to create a beautiful NEW COLLECTION to empower them economically so they are able to go to college as well as support their families and never feel trapped again”. Talk about job satisfaction and truly making a difference in people’s lives. Wow, so envious. One day I hope to make such a contribution to society.
I am truly looking forward to her collection but in the meantime, check out a few of my favourites amongst the beautiful bags these women have created.
