The Giving Candle
The Giving Candle
What better gift, than a gift that gives? 100% of our profits from this candle will go to an organization close to our hearts, Women On Wings creating jobs for women in rural India. Each pair of candles sold will essentially create 1 job!
We created this candle with female empowerment in mind. This candle is made from marble, soy wax, wooden lid with brass pull, and a silky tassel. The container can be reused as a vessel or as a mortar for grinding herbs and spices.
Scent: Rosewood & Vanilla
A bit about Women On Wings
WHY: India, a large and rapidly expanding global economic power. The middle class is growing along with it. Yet, the underclass lives on just two dollars a day. There is very little paid work in rural India. Families lack income: there are high levels of poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy. Women on Wings co-creates one million jobs for women in rural India. A job means an income, economic autonomy and an escape from the cycle of poverty. Research shows that women spend their income on their families. Children can go to school, which increases their chances of a better future.
HOW: ’Human Capital’ is the core of what we provide. We provide business consultancy to Indian social entrepreneurs that create employment for women in rural India. Our experts share their time and skills pro bono. They have 15+ years of experience in e.g. marketing, finance, product development, production, retail, food, supply chain management.
WHAT: We scale Indian social ventures, our business partners. Either through ‘1 on 1’ consultancy: our experts work – on site and off site – with the business partners to support scale their business. Or we bring together multiple business partners facing similar issues and work on solving those. The aim is the same: improving the business of Indian social enterprises, so more products will be sold and more jobs are created. Thus, we co-create lasting impact.
