WE is an inclusive word, it is refers to all of us working together to make a difference. In the Bantu language spoken in southern Africa there is a word “Ubuntu”; it is an idea present in African spirituality that says: “I am because WE are” – or WE are all connected as humans. Through buying WE Stand products you connect with the people we serve, and in a way they connect to you. Your purchase helps them!
The WE Stand Program
The WE Stand program serves as a way for our organization (WEI) to offer its continued support for the communities we work with by providing a marketing platform for girls in our WE Restore Home, clients from WE Empower microloan program, and others to market their products. The program goal was to provide entrepreneur training and also make export quality handicrafts to market locally in east africa and in the West. Today, we continue to offer these handmade artisan products on our online site and at in-person events.
