“I am a college student pursuing a diploma course in education. The order came when lecturers were on strike and so I used the opportunity to work. I worked on the Mimco Constellation 2017 order as a beader. I received a good income which I saved in order to pay my tuition fees for next semester.”

Elisabeth Silantoi, 25 years old

“I am a single mother of four. I did not get the opportunity to go to school and would not want my children to have the same experience as me. I work hard to keep them in school and was happy to receive work on the Mimco Constellation 2017 order. The income I received contributed towards meeting my desire of educating my children.” 

Mary Joseph, 35 years old

“I am a mother of five. I participated on the Mimco Constellation 2017 order as a beader. I received a good income which I used to pay primary school fees for all of five of my children. I also bought new uniforms and improved my family’s nutritional intake.”

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
