FS is nonprofit company powered by veterans who are helping women across the globe shape their futures by garnering the skills and resources they need to overcome oppression, poverty, and a lack of education.
In Afghanistan, we learned about the power of hopelessness and how insurgents used the desperation caused by poverty to force young children into the conflict. Armed with this knowledge, we set out to take this tool of manipulation away by employing widows, keeping children and school, and championing for equality. Someone is going to shape the future of Afghanistan, and it's up to us to make sure that the right people have the resources they need to build a peaceful country.
Women's empowerment is at the heart of our company. That's why we partnered with the Zaanha Fund to help women in Afghanistan gain the technical skills they need to find employment or be admitted into local universities. Your donation will help them overcome the social dogma that has kept most women out of school for over three decades.
One of our most impactful partnerships, the sweater project employs women, supports local business owners, and most importantly, provides warmth to Afghanistan's displaced children trying to survive in freezing refugee camps. We use 100% of your $20 donation to sew the sweaters and take nothing off the top.
100% of the profit from your purchase goes toward empowering women artisans and helps keep children in school and away from violent organizations.
The Prism Pashmina is our signature scarf for Spring 2017. Hand beaded by widows in Afghanistan, this line of scarves features brilliant colors and incredibly soft material. Four new color options are available. Please see the product description for details. Expected delivery date is March 31, 2017.
FS connects the world's most underserved and oppressed citizens with others who understand the important role these people play in our global community. Your purchase or donation sends a clear message to the women and children we serve as well as the groups that wish to uphold the oppressive status quo. That message is that you value these women, their work, and their children and will not stand idly by as poverty and an oppressive culture deprives them of their rights and safety. Change is possible through opportunity and education. We hope you'll be a catalyst for both by joining our team.
