What We Need & What You Get
We are self-funding our bags and hats lines. We need your help to grow the 'Bespoke' part of SEP. The funds we are raising will help us build our Bespoke offer (``embroid your coat, your wedding favours, your bedsheets, your tablecloths``): we want people to go embroidery-crazy in London, Milan, Paris! We will build a modern and versatile catalogue, which will mix traditional embroidery with modern colors and modern applications; we will market and advertise the products in Europe and the Middle East; we will build a shopping platform which will make the logistics challenge bearable. What you get: the immediate impact you will achieve is happy ladies and their families in the Jerash camp. For each donation above 50$, you will receive one of our iconic SEP jute tote-bags. We will personalize it for donations above 100$.
SEP producers are involved in a project that takes their art abroad and introduces their work and their skills to people who would never have heard of them. They are learning English, they are attending motivational speeches and classes, they are spending time together, earning money. SEP producers are generating income for the first time, in 80% of cases. The background to our operations is a camp that hardly anybody ever heard of, where up to 30,000 people live without an ID in unsuitable homes, with limited or no access to education, health, employment. The SEP producers don't want to leave the camp to seek fortune, they want to be proud of their skills and they want to be able to feed, dress and educate their kids. Please see our brochure on www.sepjordan.com to learn more about our impact in the camp.
