Our Story

As teachers on a community visit, we saw one of our students living in a low-income urbanized community running around in a beautiful peach dress. We asked her mother where she bought it from to realize it was her creation. As we moved from door to door, speaking to these unskilled and unemployed mothers, we realized that there lay a huge potential behind those closed doors that wanted to break free.
