Moriya Ethiopian Accessories
IN 2010, WE HELPED A GROUP OF SINGLE, ETHIOPIAN MOTHERS START A FOR-PROFIT BUSINESS IN ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA.
With little formal education, no vocational skills and many little mouths to feed, these women had very few options to provide for their children. So few options, in fact, that they had resorted to prostitution out of sheer desperation.
MORIYA ETHIOPIAN ACCESSORIES WAS CREATED TO
PROVIDE THESE FAMILIES WITH DIGNIFIED, SUSTAINABLE WORK TO BREAK THE GENERATIONAL CYCLES OF POVERTY.
In Moriya’s infancy, we trained these mothers in basic skills like cutting with scissors, purchasing raw materials, sewing and even selling internationally. The dignity and hope they develop through this business is helping them raise their children and give them their own hope for the future.
TODAY, THEIR BEAUTIFULLY HANDCRAFTED PRODUCTS ARE FOR SALE THROUGH LSM.
All products are sourced locally, with fabrics handwoven on traditional looms and the products lovingly crafted by independent mothers who have now been empowered to leave the streets and raise their families.
