ABLE is a lifestyle brand focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. Manufactures are directly in the communities they wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependency.
According to UNICEF, Women reinvest 80 per cent of their income into their families, while men invest only 30 to 40 per cent.
The Beginning of the journey
The goal was to provide jobs that would provide these women with the opportunity to earn a living, empowering them to end the cycle of poverty that kept them trapped. Armed with multiple studies illustrating how the employment of women benefits and strengthens an entire community, the ABLE team set out on a mission to end generational poverty, one job at a time.
ABLE has grown from producing a single collection of hand-woven scarves to a full offering that includes leather goods, hand-made jewellery, denim, and footwear. Whether your purchase is produced in Ethiopia, Mexico, Peru or in Nashville, TN, each item has one thing in common: through working with women, it is leading all of us a step closer to the end of generational poverty. The ABLE team is working each day to give the opportunity to women in a safe and healthy environment and encouraging peers to do the same.
Through your purchase, you are ABLE to empower women and give them a job with dignity.
ABLE chooses to work with women because they know that when women thrive so do the economies in which they operate.
