Empowerment

At Flying Scarfs we use the term Empowerment as our rallying cry. We have seen the effects of using it as a tool to drive results in each of our endeavors. Whether we're in Afghanistan, Haiti, Kenya or back home in the US, empowerment is more than just a word we throw around...it's the future.

Kenya

As many of our supporters are aware, Flying Scarfs is an international development organization aimed at ending poverty. While we started in Afghanistan, our goal was always to expand into other regions of the world. This July we are taking our concept of social business to Kenya. Since we are a non-profit and none of our staff receive financial compensation, we are trying our best to raise enough through "crowd funding." If you would like to donate to our trip please see our fundraising page by clicking HERE

Economic Development Trip to Haiti

When we first set out to create Flying Scarfs a year ago, our plan was always to have a worldwide impact. With your generosity through our business sucess in Afghanistan, we believe the opportunity is ripe for us to expand our influence into Haiti. We believe our micro-economic model of exporting fair trade handicrafts created in developing nations back to the U.S. can be replicated. When we got the call from www.togetherwecaninc.org to help them with their trip to Haiti, we jumped at the prospect. With your continued support we can ensure that we are continuing to serve through our entrepreneur spirit in every corner of the globe where hard work is awaiting opportunity. Help us get there by donating to our trip HERE.
