Make a Candle • Support the Underprivileged

candleIn India, 1 out of 12 girls who are born, die before their 1st birthday. By age four, 1 out of 4 are victims of sex abuse. Every day, 22 women and girls are killed by their husbands or husbands’ family after marriage.

Having a skill and a job is the FIRST step to a life of dignity. Daughters Of Tomorrow’s livelihood projects train and employ disadvantaged women in the Third World to make lovely products for sale in Singapore and internationally. Through skills acquisition and productive work, these women acquire a new sense of confidence and dignity previously denied due to socio-cultural and economic circumstances.

\o/ Yez! More bleeding-heart-socialists! We’re on a roll here!

The projects adhere to fair trade guidelines and work closely with local NGOs to make sure its beneficiaries are protected against any exploitation.
