Open your heart to the lives of others 

We are looking for funding to produce new bags and accessories that will help young mothers earn an income to provide better nutrition, and health care for their babies. 

When you pledge, you give a group of teen single mothers in Peru the opportunity to earn a fair income. This helps them to build a brighter future not only for themselves, but also for their children by ensuring they can:

  • have a balanced diet,  
  • enjoy improved sanitation and a healthy lifestyle,  
  • access education  

ethica is a social enterprise and we believe with all our heart in helping women and mothers  to become strong women and earn an income.

Women in Peru often face discrimination, particularly in education and employment. This is even more prevalent for single teenage mothers.  By the age of 19, almost 1 in 5 young women in Peru have already had a child, and 4 out of 10 will experience some form of violence. Most international evidence indicates this has a negative impact on mothers’ participation in the workforce, their education, and on the birth and future of their babies.    

Teen Pregnancy is closely related to poverty and exclusion, limiting opportunities for adolescent girls and perpetuating the cycle of poverty. 

With your support we can help them break from this cycle and have a brighter future. 

When you buy an ethica product you join us and invest in a more just world. 

Together we are investing in women. 

We pay a Fair price and create dignified work for our artisans. This provides them with the immediate opportunity to support themselves and their families. 

Together we are investing in communities.  

We aim to reinvest 100% of our profits.

Each item helps fund strong women and mothers while they earn an income that will support them and their babies.  

ethica is an endorsed Fair Trader of Australia (FToA)  meaning that the fair trade claims of ethica have been independently verified, comply with the principles of fair trade and have aided the reduction of inequality and poverty. 

We are committed to providing sustainable jobs for women that give them a fair income, a vital step towards community development and family wellbeing.

When women receive an income, entire families thrive.  

Help single teen mothers have the ability to build new skills,  care for their baby and earn a fair income.

All you have to do is pledge and share our campaign with all your friends, sharing is caring, remember

The more the merrier!

Through this campaign we will help the young mothers earn a much needed income to raise their babies and bring this new product range to life, bringing contemporary accessories to new audiences  

Help make a generational change, as helping mothers ultimately changes their children's future, enabling them to fulfill their dreams and education.

Make a pledge and make  their dreams possible.

Risks and challenges

We will keep you well informed during our campaign, so you know exactly where the rewards are and how the project is progressing. Our fair-trade ethos and ethical principles extend from our production to our customer service. We have already worked with our producers to make the first samples of our collection meaning we will be in a good position to build the range from this point. We have experience producing & importing and the artisans we work with are reliable. However, sometimes unexpected challenges arise when using raw materials and handmade process. This shouldn’t affect the delivery time too much and we’ll keep you posted every step of the way. As soon as we reach our Kickstarter goal, we will begin production – so the sooner we get there, the sooner you get your ethica products!
