Make a Candle . Empower the Underprivileged

In India, 1 out of 12 girls who are born, die before their 1st birthday. By age 4, 1 out of 4 are victims of sex abuse. Every day, 22 women and girls are killed by their husbands or husbands’ family after marriage.

Having a skill and a job is the FIRST step to a life of dignity. Daughters Of Tomorrow’s Livelihood Projects train and employ disadvantaged women in the 3rd world to make lovely products for sale in Singapore and internationally. Through skills acquisition and productive work, these women acquire a new sense of confidence and dignity previously denied due to socio-cultural and economic circumstances.

The project adheres to fair trade guidelines and work closely with local NGOs to make sure its beneficiaries are protected against any exploitation. To read more about the works of Daughters of Tomorrow, please visit http://www.youtube.com/carriehmtan.
