Ethica Accessories is a not-for-profit organisation, founded by the Sisters of St Joseph, which specialises in quality fair trade products from Peru.
The Sisters have established four groups around Peru that make products for the Ethica Accessories range: they are located in Lima, Pitumarca and Tarma. The women receive cash-in-hand payment for their product as soon as it is completed, and many of them spend it on food, as this is their most immediate need.
It is also often spent on medicine, medical fees and school supplies. The project gives women the chance to develop their skills and abilities, which in turn improves their confidence and opens doors to other opportunities and empowerment.
