Rover & Kin
After nearly a decade of constant travel and living in India, Wen King wanted to create something where she could share what she discovered. It was the simple idea that with some effort from each of us, the world can be a better and kinder place. Rover & Kin is proud to contribute to the sustainable development of artisan communities across northern India through fair trade employment. Their artisans enjoy safe and stable working environments while earning wages that are approximately 35% higher than the industry standard. Many are the breadwinners of the family and most are the first generation to have sent their children to school, see them graduate, and continue with higher education. Their craft partners operate educational centers and medical camps, and also provide guidance in capacity building and ethical finance. Over 10 million INR have been dispursed and hundreds of small businesses have been built under this scheme in our artisan communities. Most common of which are confectionary shops and vegetable stalls. It was the simple idea that with some effort from each of us, the world can be a better and kinder place. Call it the butterfly or ripple effect, but each small act can have a much greater impact than you can imagine.
