Being an ethical and sustainable brand isn't the easiest journey to go through, but it sure is the most energizing and grateful work ever.
In these 6 years we came a long way, but we also failed quite some times. During those failures, it’s important to stay focused and make your goals realistic, manageable and also be flexible if things aren’t going your way.
For this year we set out the following goals
|Starting our first clothing line||
Full in progress, more clothing items coming soon
|Attending to Dutch Festivals||
Still unsure, waiting for festival updates
|Expand our working area so more sustainable jobs can be created||
Full in progress, we added 7 new villages to our working area
Long-time goals 2021- and counting
|Structural work is guaranteed||Due to Covid, the production line is on a low, structural work cant be guaranteed|
|A fair income so they can cover their basic needs||A fair income guaranteed, due to Suriname financial crises, its challenging to cover basic needs|
|Stimulate their micro-business||One of the women started a micro business|
|Creating a workspace in the villages||
Lobbying for sponsor deals
