Supporting socially marginalised women who face barriers to work through craft.
About the project
This project has been developed by Juta Shoes, UK social enterprise that provides fair and flexible employment for local unemployed or low-income marginalised women, saving kilos of leather from landfill.
Impact and main outcome
The project started in response to the need to create fair local employment, raising the huge amounts of creativity and skill of the women in the community. There is so much potential that is often ignored because existing employment routes aren’t suitable for everyone.
This model empowers the beneficiaries delivering free employability handicraft skills and engaging the local community. Costumers can also attend handcraft workshops run by women employed in the company.
