Our Impact Model: Empowering Communities Through Collaboration and Education
At La casa de Freja, we believe that every business has a responsibility to make a positive impact on the world. Our commitment to creating lasting change is at the core of our mission. Here’s a closer look at how we’re making a difference:
1. Supporting Education in Peru Through NGO HOOP:
We are proud to partner with NGO HOOP (Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru). Every month, we contribute 2% of our sales to this organization that is dedicated to working in vulnerable communities in the northern part of Arequipa, Peru. Their projects are focused on three key areas: Education, Family (psychology), and Community (social work).
By supporting HOOP’s educational initiatives, we help children overcome academic challenges and motivate adults to complete their education. This empowers individuals to become agents of change within their own community and generate their own development.
2. Collaborative Design and Fair Compensation:
At La casa de Freja, we don’t just sell beautiful handmade products; we craft stories and foster connections. Our collaborative design process is the cornerstone of our approach. We partner with talented artisans in Peru, respecting their traditional craftsmanship and celebrating their unique skills. This collaboration ensures that each product we offer is a work of art, rich in cultural heritage.
– Empowering Artisans: By engaging in collaborative design, we empower artisans to express their creativity and preserve their cultural heritage. Through fair compensation, we ensure that these artisans are rewarded equitably for their talent and hard work.
– Sustainable and Ethical Practices: We are committed to sustainability. We use eco-friendly materials and uphold ethical production practices. This commitment aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and helps reduce our environmental footprint while promoting responsible business practices.
