How does Doug help?
Our brave women farmers want to keep farming – it's what they do. But income from cotton farming is unreliable & insufficient to run their households. They need a steady & guaranteed source of income in addition to what they make in the farms.
This is where Doug comes in.
- The women get free training and free raw materials for making these clouds, which they hand stitch in their spare time.
- They are paid for every Doug they make, plus 100% of the money raised goes back to the community for supporting local projects.
- In addition to this income, there is also an increased sense of confidence & independence in each of the women involved in this project.
- It empowers them and helps to pay off their debts; and reduces the stress to pay for school fees for their kids and medical bills for their families.
