Emily Maynard is one of the most stylish celebrity moms in America and now she’s taking her style halfway around the world to Ethiopia! The former reality television star has joined forces with FashionABLE, which is a fashion line that helps create sustainable businesses in Africa. Here’s what we’re reading from their web site:
Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business in Africa. We are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and our main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women. That means that your purchase of a scarf creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy.
So our strategy is two-fold. We work with women to help them start small business cooperatives, and we partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with fair wages & fair hiring practices.
How awesome is that? Check out some of Emily’s most recent photos from her trip and let us know what you think. And I must admit, I love her FashionABLE scarves, which you can purchase on their site. We can’t wait to hear more from Emily Maynard on this wonderful project!
