The Fair Indigo Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve educational opportunities for children in the Peruvian communities where our cotton is grown, our alpacas are herded, and our products are made. The Foundation is funded by donations and by the support of Fair Indigo, which covers 100% of administrative and fundraising costs. That means every penny donated goes directly to supporting schools, teachers, and kids.
The Manchay School started as a makeshift building funded by various local charities. The school combats urban poverty by serving the children of families living in one of the poorest unincorporated neighborhoods of the capital city of Lima.
The Serapis School serves impoverished rural kids in this highlands community of northern Peru, near Cajamarca. The school was founded by Javier and Elsa – the family that grows our organic cotton and runs our fair trade workshops.
Transforming individuals, families, and societies from poverty to prosperity. All of the good done by the Foundation was funded by $5 donations.
