TRIBE OF LAMBS
A JEWELRY BRAND WITH HEART SUPPORTING
HIV POSITIVE CHILDREN IN INDIA
We design jewelry.
We produce everything ethically, in India.
We use our profits to fund projects with HIV positive kids, in India.
India has the third largest HIV epidemic in the world – where approximately 2.1 million people are living with the virus, and about 170,000 of those people are children under the age of 15.
Due to lack of knowledge about the disease, many of these HIV+ children either lose their parents, due to death or abandonment, or their families are simply unable to provide the necessary care.
Furthermore, government orphanages in India do not accept HIV+ children, resulting in begging, prostitution, child labour & unstable street life in order to survive.
Government schools are regularly denying admission or segregating HIV+ children in the classroom, reinforcing the already rampant fear & stigma surrounding the disease & denying these children the right to education without discrimination.
“….the most common outcome is either the child watching their parents eventually develop AIDS and pass away, or the child is ostracized by their parents for having HIV and left to fend for him or herself on the streets.”
We partner with Indian NGO’s and homes which work solely for the care, education & rights of children that are either infected or affected by the HIV virus.
Together we define areas that Tribe of Lambs can fund to support their work, support the children and relieve financial constraints.
Our projects focus on:
- Funding education through tuition, school supplies, uniforms & transport
- Creating safe places for learning, growth & development
- Providing access to facilities & resources required to build bright futures
- Awareness initiatives in Canada, UK & India
Helping to create bright futures for HIV positive kids
HOW WE DO IT
It’s simple, our products fund our projects.
100% of our profits, from every product purchased, fund our compassion projects. Empowering HIV+ children is at the essence of everything we do. And our mission is fuelled by YOU, the conscious consumer ready to Shop for Good.
The Tribe is essentially you! People who engage and connect with our brand, who support our mission for ethically produced products that make a positive impact in the world.
It’s because of you, wearing our products & sharing our story, that we can turn our vision into reality.
We spend part of our year in India working directly with artisans, developing strong relationships & ensuring our products are high quality and ethically made. Our artisans know that the work they do in turn supports children in need, right in their own community.
If they’re happy, we’re happy.
