Looking for a way to provide genuine assistance to people living in poverty? Try this “E-Market”
The Ladies of Charity of Kansas City in cooperation with the Ladies of Charity of the United Sates of America® have a simple way to reach out to a global community and help provide systemic change through collaboration.
As partners of the Vincentian Family, the Mission Market allows Ladies of Charity to share in the Daughters of Charity work in developing countries where the Daughters operate “skill centers.” Through the Daughters of Charity International Project Services, funds and resources are provided for needed materials to produce a wide assortment of unique and beautiful items. The goal is to expand outlets for these products so that “persons who live in poverty may learn productive skills and build businesses to support their families and communities.”
HOW ARE THE ITEMS ACQUIRED AND SOLD? Through an online market, retail centers such as hospital and nursing home gift shops, boutiques and thrift stores, and other fundraising endeavors that purchase these items for resale. The Mission Market e-commerce website provides a wholesale inventory of products such as jewelry handbags and clothing. These items are beautifully handcrafted by skilled artisans.
