Prosperity Candle is a small group of people who have joined together to create positive change in the world. They come from different walks of life, yet share a common dream: a world where all women have the opportunity to truly thrive. As a social enterprise, they work at the intersection of business and philanthropy, seeking sustainable market-based solutions to today’s challenges. They believe supporting women’s entrepreneurship and harnessing the immense resources of the global marketplace is the most effective way to achieve long-term impact.
As they explored different possibilities for a new model, they found that candle-making, unlike many handmade products, is a uniquely scalable enterprise and one that was uniquely suited to women’s needs in distressed nations. The more molds a woman invests in, the more candles she makes each day and the more income she can earn.
Each candle is handmade by a woman refugee creating a new life for herself and her family in the U.S. Story cards are included with your order. Purchase a candle and you will be combining light, beauty and purpose to inspire a brighter future for these women. Knowing that every 10 candles sold equals one day’s living wage for a woman in Iraq motivates Prosperity Candle daily.
