Decjuba has partnered with The Hunger Project Australia, releasing a limited-edition pouch designed to create jobs, nurture skills & empower women.
The pouch is the latest in the on-going partnership which has seen Decjuba raise over $90,000 for The Hunger Project. For this collaboration, The Hunger Project engaged women in Bangladesh to handcraft bags for Decjuba. The purpose was to develop the women’s skills, provide jobs and income and ultimately allow the women to become self-reliant.
“We loved creating these pouches with Decjuba and the women in Bangladesh. The Collaboration has enabled a group of young women in Bangladesh to be trained and employed in the production process, As a result, they have been able to feed their families, send their children to school and pay for their own studies. The funds raised through sales of the pouches will mean that even more women can be educated and empowered to transform their lives and lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.”
