Together, we have the power to change the world—but what good is that power unless we use it? I believe that every business, regardless of its size, has a responsibility to give back to the larger community. After all, we employ its human resources and consume its natural resources in an effort to make a profit.
My commitment to you is that She Goes With Gratitude will act as a good global citizen.
Half of my professional career was spent in the nonprofit sector where I witnessed firsthand impactful and often life-changing work. I recognize the importance of giving back to the communities around us, near and far.
As the Owner & Founder of She Goes With Gratitude, I am committed to demonstrating honesty in my business practices, integrating responsible and ethical standards, seeking out Fair Trade and/or green partners, and supporting nonprofit organizations.
My first trip to Africa was life changing. I went on safari with Thomson Safaris in Tanzania, but the best part was not the wildlife, it was the excursions in which we were immersed in the culture. I spent time in a school, a health clinic, a local tribe, and with a women’s empowerment group—that last encounter has stayed with me ever since.
"I Believe Giving Back is Important"
I am committing to donating 10% of my profits to Focus on Tanzanian Communities (FoTZC), the nonprofit organization (started by the co-founders of Thomson Safaris) to support the empowerment group I visited, the Enyuata Women’s Collaborative. From their website: thomsonsafaris.com/giving-back/
Working with the Enyuata Women’s Collaborative, FoTZC fosters entrepreneurship among Tanzanian women by offering entrepreneurship training and helping them sell hand-crafted, beaded jewelry in an effort to independently provide for their families.
In addition to the jewelry business, FoTZC has helped women establish businesses in agriculture and other industries. Together, these groups help foster confidence in a group of strong women who can go on to improve the lives of their families and the condition of their communities.
You can’t keep it unless you give it away. Together, we have the power to improve women’s lives, and those of their families.
Grateful for your support!
