From Tiny Miracles website:

“The communities we work with can stay out of poverty because we give them the opportunity to generate an income. An income which helps them to pay not only for food and shelter but also for things like healthcare and education. As there are limited jobs available for unskilled people, let alone fair paying ones, we decided to create jobs. We teach them the necessary skills and design aesthetically beautiful products which are sold in high-end stores across the world.”
