P.A.C.E.S. stands for Production of Artisanal Crafts for Empowerment of Society. Our mission is to produce exclusive & western designed handicrafts in a fair way and with the generated profits finance support-programs for vulnerable children in India.
In the first place, we are a fair-trade workplace of handmade textiles in Ranchi where underprivileged women are trained and employed. In Jharkhand thousands of girls are trafficked each year. We believe that by offering a decent job these women will less probably emigrate to the big cities in search of a better destiny where they often end up in situations of abuse or extreme poverty. By paying them fair wages we hope to enable future generations the chance for improved education and livelihood.
As a social company, Paces Crafts aims to double it’s social impact by investing all profits made in The Jaan foundation. This Indian trust gives hope and critical support to children in need of care and protection. The Jaan foundation promotes a safe and full childhood for child domestic workers and other vulnerable children through shelter and care, education, skills development, advocacy on child rights, promotion of the right to participation and action against trafficking.
