Same Sky

In 2009, Same Sky, a trade-not-aid initiative, committed to providing HIV positive and vulnerable women with the tools to lift themselves out of poverty and lead self-sufficient lives. To do this, Same Sky will partner with local cooperatives to both offer programs that train artisans to make exquisite jewelry and to provide access to a viable distribution platform to sell the artisans' products.
