Flo Gives Back is an initiative that empowers and supports vulnerable and marginalised women in Nepal. Read on for more about our journey so far…
Flo Gives Back
In every corner of the world, there exists an opportunity to extend compassion, to weave tales of empowerment and to ignite transformation. At Flo & Frankie, our ethos isn’t just about offering quality products - It’s about giving back.
We have one simple, unshakable belief:
Every individual deserves love.
With this guiding principle , Flo Gives Back was born.
Why Nepal? Understanding The Cause:
The echoes of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal resonate even today. As homes turned to rubble and communities were shattered, the tremor left in its wake not just physical destruction, but deep emotional scars. The aftermath witnessed an upsurge in human trafficking, with the defenceless becoming targets of this atrocity.
However, from these adversities, rose the invincible spirit of the Nepali people , especially in the heartlands of Makwanpur.
Allying with Share & Care Nepal through Tearfund, we witnessed their groundbreaking initiatives firsthand:
Empowerment Through Education: Enabling women to launch their own sustainable businesses, ensuring a brighter future for them and their children.
Financial Stability: Building socio-economic resilience in families to mitigate the risk of children being trafficked.
- Awareness and Rehabilitation: Educating about trafficking, and more importantly, extending a healing hand to its victims, guiding them back to their families and equipping them with skills for a better life.
