A + O COMMUNI-T WITH GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN
alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet is excited to announce the launch of the newest AO Communi- T in partnership with Global Fund for Women. In it’s 32 year history, Global Fund for Women has invested in nearly 5,000 women-led groups across 175 countries, helping win rights for millions of women and girls. alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet is proud to continue the partnership for the third iteration of the AO Communi-T supporting Global Fund for Women.
The last partnership supported Global Fund for Women’s grantee-partner Unlad Kabayan Migrant Services Foundation, a women-led organization in the Philippines, enabling them to start two entrepreneurship projects for women, doing rug and candy making. The project not only supported entrepreneurship training, but also the initiation of production and successful sales of some of the early products during the holiday period. In addition to these efforts, two child-care and early education centers for the children of the women engaged in the program were created. Called “Learning Hubs,” the centers, named Open the World to Kids, have become integral to the success of the entrepreneurship program.
For every t-shirt sold, alice + olivia will donate 10% of the net proceeds to Global Fund for Women. For Bendet, beautiful clothing is about bringing happiness to women however and whenever she can. For this shirt, the money raised will help Unlad Kabayan to continue the entrepreneurship projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia working on entrepreneurship projects in the context of climate change, and will continute to support the Learning Hub childcare centers.
