This Lidia May tote holds everything, including hope! Lidia May employs women from the urban slums of Bangladesh, giving them a way to earn money for their families and lift themselves out of poverty which so few are able to escape. On average a woman will re-invest 90% of her paycheck back into her household, so when you invest in women, you invest in everyone.
But how do they do it? They teach them! Lidia May works in partnership with the Lidia Hope Centre Trust, a non-profit that educates. With their 2 part certification process within a month the women have learned enough to start earning. But wait…there’s more! Lidia May also invests in the education of children. They have 60 students from ages 6-12. They attend normal school hours and have after school homework sessions to make sure the kids are in a nurturing learning environment most of their day. They even have a story book library!
And if you’re feeling a little fancy they have gorgeous clutches as well. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone out with this clutch and had people stop and ask me about it. Their inspiring story makes for the perfect ice breaker!
