Meet Papillon! Work of Worth just dropped a BUNCH of new products, and we're thrilled to share them with you! Papillon Enterprises is a social enterprise dedicated to creating dignified job opportunities as a means to reducing the quantity of "Poverty-Orphans" operating in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
What is a poverty orphan, you ask? It's a great question. Poverty orphans are children who have been separated from their families due to the hardships of poverty. Haiti, roughly the size of the state of Maryland, has more orphanages than Maryland has McDonalds. The fact is a TON of children in these orphanages have family they should be living with, but orphanages often have more resources and opportunities to offer. The result is a heartbreaking choice parents are often forced to make due to the lack of sustainable jobs in the country.
Enter Papillon, with their signature tagline "Orphan Prevention through Job Creation". Papillon trains and employees hundreds of men and women at their artisan workshop, where they produce incredibly unique products.
