Hot running water, automatic washing machines, new ovens and beautiful tiles. This summer we have watched as some of our artisans have transformed their family homes.

One of the things we have witnessed among our DECE artisans is that as you provide someone with employment they begin a journey of empowerment. And as they become empowered at work, their dreams for their families and home grow.

A steady income releases stress, giving space to dream of the future and begin to save money to make those dreams a reality. This summer one of our leather artisans and his family have done just that!

Before the renovation

Now with hot water flowing into their home, a new automatic washing machine and a new kitchen fitted, it is so exciting to see this family flourish.

This is empowerment.
