Have you ever wondered what happens to broken kites, discarded sails and malfunctioning parachutes? After all, these are strong and valuable materials, however when defective, they become completely useless. Or do they?
For Kite Pride in Tel Aviv, the materials are not only treasured for being a useful textile, but they are a tool to serve the community and defend the abused. The company repurposes these durable fabrics headed for trash both locally & globally, to upcycle them and create, as they say, second wind for kites and people.
Kite Pride provides jobs to women and men exiting the trafficking world and the modern-day slavery. It’s a rare opportunity of safe employment that boosts them back into the workforce. Built on excellence, authenticity and transparency, they provide their employees with the necessary skills to go forward.
The co-founders collaborate with existing governmental and non-governmental organizations to combat modern day slavery on a global scale. Locally, their mission is to provide and offer paid jobs and rehabilitation employment. They are careful with how they refer to their employees, treating each person with dignity and respect.
Kite Pride follows a business model that is innovative and committed to excellence, setting up a career launch for their staff who generally have very little job experience to put on their resumes.
By supporting their work and spreading the word, you can play your part in this great fight for freedom.
