In 40K Globe’s pursuit to provide a fair means of employment to impoverished local village women we have produced a significant product line. The product line includes Yoga mat bags, Laptop Sleeves, Tote Bags, Happy Pants, Happy Shorts, Roka Necklaces and Roka Cufflinks. All of these products have come from the bright spark idea of Young Australians who have participated on the 40K Globe program. We currently sell all seven of these products through three different channels – retail, events and an online store. This has ultimately led to the employment of women in India.
Currently we employ 6 women on a long-term contract basis who work from their own home on a wage that is above the normal wage rates available in their communities. Per week we aim to provide 20 hours of work which enables them to balance their time with their home and family duties. Our current focus is to produce high quality products to be sold at high volumes of sales in Australia so that we can empower and provide the same employment opportunity to more women.
