We'Moon 2017 Dedication: SSAAP

Every year, we donate a portion of our proceeds to an organization bringing positive change to the world and the lives of women. We dedicate this edition of We'Moon to Simwatachela Sustainable Agricultural and Arts Program. SSAAP is a humanitarian rights, grassroots-based organization dedicated to equalizing the resources of the world, servicing in the most rural and remote areas of Zambia and Sierra Leone, where the need for education, clean water, health care and women's empowerment are most needed. Our donation will be directed toward ending Female Genital Mutilation  in Sierra Leone. According to UNICEF, about 9 out of 10 girls and women in the country have been "circumcised," and SSAAP is working hard to educate young mothers about the dangers of this "initiation." Funds will support health-education workshops for the mothers of young girls who have not yet been cut. Additionally, with its arts initiative, SSAAP works to commission artisans in Zambia and Sierra Leone to paint, bead, sew, batik, carve and draw. We are excited to offer the work of individual artisan women in our Solstice package deals this year. Stay tuned for the opportunity to make your holiday gift giving even more meaning-full!
