The crafspeople and giving back

The Newspaper Collection is crafted largely by women in villages throughout Sri Lanka. Many of these women have little to no employment opportunities due to lack of education, disabilities, or domestic obligations. The Newspaper Collection project allows them the flexibility to work from home so they can earn an income while attending to household responsibilities. The additional income enables these craftswomen to contribute to their families and livelihoods in ways they haven't been able to in the past. The result is a touching, positive impact to their financial, emotional, and mental well-being. Some have even said that it has given them a greater sense of belonging and purpose not only because they have become contributors to the household finances, but also because the training provided has enabled them to learn something new and accumulate new skills. 

A portion of the proceeds from this collection goes to the women’s empowerment sector of the Foundation of Goodness. Their programs provide training and skills to enable women to enter the job market, develop their own businesses, and feel a greater sense of direction, worth, and security.
