fashionABLE: Life-saving scarves

Lacking financial resources, many women in Ethiopia resort to prostitution as a means of supporting themselves and their families. These women are often desperate to leave the sex industry but are trapped by a lack of opportunity.

fashionABLE empowers women in Addis Ababa, the capital city, by giving them jobs – making pretty scarves to go around your neck! Each scarf is named after a woman whose life has been changed because of your purchase, and includes a handwritten note from the weaver.
