Lasallian Women of Hope (LWH) has partnered with FairTrade Caravans this holiday season to raise money to support young women attending Lasallian ministries around the world. Between November 10 – December 11, 2023, LWH will receive 25% of FairTrade Caravans’ product sales. Proceeds go to La Salle BJT Academy in Kessera in India, to support a Wash, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) project to improve the girls’ bathroom facilities, along with supporting menstrual education and a Pad Project.
De La Salle Holy Cross High School in Johannesburg, South Africa, will also benefit from this fundraiser, with proceeds supporting a young women mentoring program, menstrual education and a Pad Project.
FairTrade Caravans’ products are made in safe working conditions with sustainable practices. They do not use child labor and offer fair pay for all employees. While this fundraiser offers an opportunity to bring attention to and fundraise for LWH, LWH is one of four initiatives that FairTrade Caravans supports as a fundraiser throughout the year.
A project of the Solidarity and Development Secretariat, LWH fosters educational access, empowers girls and women, and creates sustainable change. Its mission is to ensure girls and women enjoy full access to education. LWH began as a small project providing grassroots female empowerment while developing sustainable solutions to mitigate obstacles impeding educational access. Through its grants, LWH delivers creative, effective and durable solutions to educational inequities for girls and women. Learn more about Lasallian Women of Hope.
