Access to Opportunity &  Support for Community Leaders

Our direct programs work with small groups of marginalized women around the world, providing access to economic opportunities, emotional support, and funds to implement community projects of their choosing. 

We provide training, materials, and equipment for these groups to make products for the US consumer market. We focus on earrings and handbags made from locally sourced and eco-friendly materials where possible.  These products are sold under our lifestyle brand, An Invincible Summer.  

The women are paid upfront for their work, meaning their wages are not contingent on our sales. The proceeds from our sales are then used to fund community projects of the women's choosing. 

You can follow their journeys at http://www.aninvinciblesummer.org. (coming soon)
