A NEW DAY DAWNS

Discover the beauty of a story like no other

Rescue. Redemption. Purpose. Legacy.

You’ve never owned a bag like this before.

Six years ago, outside a rural village 35 kms from Vijayawada city of Andhra Pradesh state, Shanti is toiling in the fields under the hot noonday sun. It’s over 40 degrees, but her meagre salary from day labouring is all she has to keep her children fed and clothed. Some days, it doesn’t even go that far…
Shanti once dreamed that her children would receive a proper education to lift them out of poverty, but today the dream is painfully beyond her grasp. Life is desperate, and fearful.

And then Promise Bags happened…

Today, Shanti enjoys secure, dignified work indoors in a safe environment. Her comprehensive training allows her to craft beautiful leather bags for export, funding not only an equitable wage for herself, but also her
children’s enrolment in the adjacent private school.

In fact, Promise Bags and Light Kids school are both run as part of the same organisation– because they were both conceived as a joint vehicle to support vulnerable women and children with employment and education.

The cycle is now broken, sustainably.
