OTHERS is The Salvation Army’s direct trade brand that provides fair rates directly to the producers. The goal is not to maximize profit, but to maximize justice. OTHERS represents a return to our Salvationist roots of addressing injustice as close to the cause as possible with ingenuity.
With partners in four countries – Bangladesh, Kenya, Moldova and Pakistan, the OTHERS brand works directly with more than 700 women, offering a non-exploitive source of income. OTHERS has focused on specific social groups – destitute women, prostituted and trafficked women, widows and divorced women, who are particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Due to lack of opportunities and positive direction, these women have previously not been able to generate a sustainable income, from their traditional and exceptional handiwork skills.
Most of the women producers in Bangladesh are the heads of their households and are now able to provide for their families’ basic needs, to send their children to school and to develop their businesses.
Prices for OTHERS Home Party products are remarkably affordable, with prices ranging from $3.50 to $44. Most items are available for $20 or less. Whether you have a limited or a large income, there is a quality OTHERS item that you can afford to purchase and to participate in a story that moves out of exploitation into freedom.
We often say that home is where the heart is. Why not share your heart for justice in your home by hosting an OTHERS home party?
