Prosperity Candle helps women in and from regions of conflict and natural disaster by investing in them as entrepreneurs overseas, and providing employment in the U.S. We work with women from places like Haiti and Iraq to start candle businesses with access to local and global markets. In the U.S., we work with recently resettled refugees from places like Burma who are rebuilding their lives after years of hardship.
We were recently recognized as an influencer in Fast Company’s July/August 2012 issue. Siiri Morley, one of our Founding Partners, was noted as 1 of a 60 member list of the “League of Extraordinary Women” which includes notable women like Hillary Clinton, Leymah Gbowee, Oprah, Melinda Gates, and Christy Turlington. We have also received recognition from the Huffington Post, Ode Magazine, Yahoo Shine!, Forbes Woman, and Aol.
Our shared prosperity model for sustainable impact complements the work of nonprofit partners to help fill the gap between vital vocational and life skills programs and a viable means to support a family. Our work is sustained through the design, production and sale of distinctive handmade candles and gifts to nonprofits, businesses, faith-based organizations, and individuals who desire meaningful products that are aligned with their values and have a direct, positive impact on a woman’s life.
Bottom line: we create opportunities for women seeking to earn above a living wage - to not just survive, but thrive. join us in transforming the way we do business!
