What is their Mission?
Rooted in collaboration and innovative design solutions, Anchal is a non-profit that operates like a business. By driving impact through product sales versus donations alone, we are confident in the long-term sustainability of our initiatives.
Our programs demonstrate that when we systematically address employment inequality, we can reduce the number of women reliant on commercial sex work and eliminate the stigma that women and girls face around the world. 95% of Anchal artisans have left the commercial sex trade or dramatically reduced their clients. Every artisan has her own personal bank account. And 100% of artisans are investing in their children’s education, thereby breaking the cycle of exploitation.
Careers & Company Culture
Anchal Project is a fair trade, sustainable fashion brand led by women to empower women. We’re a small, tight-knit team of empathetic, ambitious and collaborative individuals driven by a passion for designing change in the lives of our artisans and the textile industry as a whole. We’re always looking for talented, energetic individuals to join our team in Louisville, Kentucky.
