This school in Northern Ghana started with 20 girls under a tree. A few short years later, there are more than 120 girls happily studying inside a classroom built thanks to the support of Ten by Three.
Their parents can pay for their school fees and uniforms thanks to purchases of Ten by Three product. One student told us that before our collaboration the girls were not counted among the human beings of the earth because they were poor and dirty. As you can see, that is no longer the case and their voices can now be heard.
students are thriving in communities we serve
Every child raising their hand has a voice thanks to supporters of Ten by Three who purchased their parents’ handicrafts. These children live in Madagascar where poverty once robbed them of their voice in the world. Today they attend school and enjoy a life of peace, prosperity and education.
These women in Northern Ghana were each illiterate when we found them just a few short years ago. Purchases of Ten by Three products enabled them to educate their daughters. Their daughters then helped them read and understand important things such as bank documents, enabling them to open bank accounts.
Opening a savings a account, owning property and getting an education was unheard of for girls and women in this village prior to our partnership.
Purchasing Ten by Three products stops the cycle of illiteracy and puts women like these and their daughters on the road to financial independence.
You are looking at a basket middleman in Madagascar. She is upset because local artisans are using Ten by Three to leverage higher prices for their baskets. The basket you see is a new design introduced by Ten by Three.
Local weavers who are not Ten by Three artisans copied the design and then demanded and received three times the normal market price from the middleman. This pressure on basket middlemen means even non-Ten by Three weavers benefit from our unique Prosperity Wages® model.
results of deforestation found in madagascar before ten by three
This is the impact poverty has had on conservation efforts in Madagascar. The cleared land was once home to a lush forest. Poverty forced villagers to cut down the trees to sell and burn the land to plant rice.
The Ten by Three Prosperity Wage model makes it possible for our artisans to have an alternative way to earn income and no longer must turn to deforestation as a source of income.
