Yellow Leaf Hammocks

Artisan Organization: Yellow Leaf Hammocks

Country: Thailand

Yellow Leaf Hammocks believes that ethical job creation is an empowering long-term solution to extreme poverty. Instead of organizing a patchwork of charitable donations to provide water, nutrition, clothing, etc., they work directly with families to build a comprehensive, dignified, long-term strategy toward a brighter future. The causes behind systemic poverty are complicated, but long-term financial stability is within reach.

Across three weaving communities, Yellow Leaf creates jobs for women like Khaen, pictured, and builds a foundation for positive community transformation through flexible, safe, "prosperity wage" weaving work.
