I feel so grateful to truly love my job.
Peacock Republic was founded with social responsibility at its core and we make choices every day that globally regard those around us and the world we all share. So I was especially honored and excited this year when the opportunity arose to partner with We International to effectuate a microenterprise project in Uganda. We are enamoured and encouraged with the work that We, Int. does globally and were humbled at the opportunity to provide microenterprise training to women in East Africa who have been rescued from prostitution and now reside at an after care shelter.
By giving these women the training and tools they need, they’re now producing limited edition collections of our soy candles for sale through our flagship and stockists. And they’re now equipped with trade skills which enable them to generate income for themselves and their children, helping them break the cycle of poverty.
This project is unique in that 100% of profits are returned to the women and We International, a Wisconsin based non-profit organization. These limited edition seasonal collections will be available soon and I encourage you to check them out and support this amazing project.
