Spotlight on Trade Justice Mission
Trade Justice Mission is a non-profit organization working in Asia, Africa, Indonesia and the Philippines with women who have been exploited due to sex trafficking or because of carrying the AIDS virus.
Trade Justice Mission partners with non-governmental organizations to help provide opportunities for microfinancing, training, marketing and long term development to communities in third world countries.
Okoa was born out of Trade Justice Mission with the aim to restore justice, dignity and hope to women in third world countries through the creation of beautiful jewelry. 100% of the profits of the sales of this jewelry goes directly back to the women who created them giving them a fair wage and the opportunity to leave the live of poverty. As these women gain an income, they are able to contribute to their local economies and educate their children. The cycle begins to stop.
