We're thrilled to announce the launch of our #TrueBeautyGivesBack series!
Throughout December, we're highlighting some of our favorite founders and giving you a chance to support some of our favorite social enterprises. All month long we're letting you decide where 25% of every purchase you make on truemoringa.com goes- yoga for underserved populations in Boston, education for children in rural Ghana, or employment opportunities for survivors of human trafficking in India. Together, we can create a more caring economy.
Each Wednesday, we'll sit down with one of the founders and leaders of three world-changing organizations to get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into sustaining a social enterprise. For now, here's a snapshot:
MEET THERESA, FOUNDER OF LEGIT.YOGA:
"So often, the experience of homelessness and being low income coincides with the experience of trauma and on-going mental health issues. As a professional, I was always looking for new information, new research, and new approaches to my work. I went to a training about a new way to approach talk-therapy for people with PTSD, and I thought to myself, “If this were condensed into an hour, it would be a really amazing yoga class.” I started to wonder if that was a thing: treating trauma with yoga. And as it turns out, it is!"

MEET SINDHURA, FOUNDER OF ZESA:
"I’ve had the incredible privilege of witnessing the transformation that takes place when you give a girl who has been exploited for years, a uniform, someone to teach her, and something to strive for. Since the inception of Zesa, I’ve seen our graduates thrive in their jobs, make a great living, and truly, begin a new life."

MEET LAUREN, FOUNDER OF THE AKAA PROJECT:
"We believe in the power of local voices and local people to be changemakers in their own communities. Our staff - our people have better insights in the rural context because they live it, they grew up in it, and now, they are part of changing it."
