Seeds to Sew: Conscious Buying Impacts Lives
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Ellyn Ito, Founder and Executive Director of local nonprofit – a member of the Fair Trade Federation – Seeds to Sew International, will discuss the impact that Seeds to Sew programs have in rural Kenya and how they affect communities here in America. Learn how the programs involve our local communities, encourage local prosperity, challenge the norm, encourage upcycling, and inspire conscious buying.

Seeds to Sew is focused on improving the lives of women and girls in impoverished communities through access to education and economic opportunities. The nonprofit is based in Hopewell, NJ and has operations in 3 subsistence farming villages in rural Kenya. Their programs enable women to learn how to sew, become empowered and independent, and girls bead bracelets or learn local crafts as a way to pay for school tuition.

With the domestic marketing and distribution efforts of the program’s Kenyan-made products, in the latter half of 2018, Seeds to Sew will implement a Mercer County-based program that will provide an opportunity for survivors of domestic violence or those recently released from incarceration to re-enter the workforce.
