Supporting Women

Cooperatives MainThreads of Life works directly with over 1,000 women in more than 35 cooperative groups on islands from Kalimantan to Timor. The common question among these cooperatives is, “How do we maintain our culture and identity, and make a living at the same time?”

Threads of Life helps to answer this question. Our business model uses real markets to reward cultural integrity, promote conservation of the environment, and empower families in some of the world’s poorest places to lift themselves out of poverty.
