Tejo is a Philippine social enterprise that provides livelihood for empowered mothers from low-income communities. With no one else to watch over their children, many mothers are forced to stay at home, resigned to being completely financially dependent on their partners. By providing them with training and materials, we help them be productive and income-earning without having to leave their homes. More than just fair income, they're empowered with the hope that when their hardwork is combined with the right opportunties, they can transform their dreams for their families into tangible goals. We hope this creates a ripple effect within their homes and communities.
Handwoven bracelets, necklaces (sold seasonally), handmade cards, clutch bags and totes.
