Sustainable Living

Women achieving value and empowerment

Women achieving value and empowerment

The Foundation fosters partnerships with entities and organizations in the Middle East and surrounding nations. The ALO Cultural Foundation actively seeks to develop highly attractive products created in the Middle East, such as crafts and textiles, and then introduce them into the American market. Such products often solely rely on the tourist market in those countries. By accessing deeper North American pockets, the creators of these products can augment their limited household incomes. These products must be supported through job creation, microfinance that sustains entrepreneurs, skill development and in general, removing barriers to economic livelihood.

We envision North American corporations which would promote and sell these products to Western consumers, while investing in the talents of the underserved in other countries. Currently, we have several products in development.

Overall, our goal is to invest in local talent, growing the future of sustainable manufacturing along with jobs and income that investment brings.

There is a long and valued history of craftsmanship among people in developing countries. Centuries of skill and tradition have long been centered in villages and in the very hands of those who tend the land and their culture.

Craft initiatives for Women

ALO Foundation’s Sustainability program has partnered with Wild Jordan to provide job opportunities for women in the Dibeen Forest Reserve in Jordan. By targeting these women, we believe they gain greater influence to shape the economic and social future of their communities.

The partnership has launched handmade ceramics and embroidery workshops in Dibeen, as well as the creation of eight permanent jobs and 14 part-time home-based jobs for women.

The Foundation’s Sustainability program desires to expand the program to other areas to create store fronts and apartments for women. This, paired with job training in such skills as handicrafts and graphic design, can help many girls transition from orphanages to young adulthood.
