Barrett Ward founded Mocha Club in 2005 – a new generation of activists giving up the cost of a few mochas, or $9 a month, to fund relief and development projects in Africa. A few years later, Barrett moved to Ethiopia for a year. While there, he ran across Women at Risk, a group that works with women exploited in the sex industry. After seeing their effectiveness and the dignity restored in these women, he learned that one of the biggest challenges to keeping these women off the streets is gainful employment. For this purpose, fashionABLE was conceived.
Your purchase of a fashionABLE product creates sustainable business in Africa. They are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women. That means that your purchase creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy.
