Ayékinam

 
 
Now that am working with Francis + Benedict I’ve re-gained my dignity. Sometimes I didn’t have food or money but since I started working, this problem is solved. When I did not have a place to sleep, you provided me with a house for me and my children.
— Ayékinam

After her husband's passing, Ayékinam and her five children were living in an aluminum house with no door and only a fabric curtain to protect them from the outside world. Since her employment as a seamstress with Francis + Benedict, she and her children have been able to move into a new home. She now earns a fair wage and is able to provide for herself and her children. 

Francis + Benedict is about so much more than fashion- it's about justice, mercy, empowerment, and stewardship. Consider the life-changing impact your purchases can make in the lives of our sisters around the world.
