TWP: Past Campaigns
Syria, Haiti, Cambodia & the Philippines
Education & Jobs for Syrian Refugees in Jordan (2017) – Amount Raised (+ $10K USD)
We partnered with the 501c3 The Syria Fund located in Jordan that focuses on educating Syrian children, providing humanitarian aid and creating opportunities for refugees to work and make a living. There are an estimated 1.3 million Syrians living in Jordan today which constitutes 13% of the population. More than 80% of Syrian refugees live outside of refugee camps in hosting communities in Jordan which is the population The Syrian fund works with. We helped The Syria Fund with their new academic program called Middle East Children’s Institute forward by raising over $10k USD to pay for the salaries of 3 Syrian women which were hired to become outreach counselors. We were also able to buy school supplies, hygiene kits, and emergency food & clothing supplies for Syrian widows who were unable to find jobs.
Jobs for Artisan Women in Haiti (2015) – Amount Raised (+ $15K USD)
We did a project in Fond des Blancs, Haiti alongside Haiti Projects to expand their Artisan Cooperative which was founded in 1994 and employs nearly 100 women at Fair Trade wages making heirloom quality, handcrafted embroidered and knit products. Their products are sold online, at retailers and through events in the U.S. and in Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these items go directly toward supporting the Haiti Projects artisans, providing them with a life changing income. We were able to raise over $15k USD in order to help the expansion of this project to financially empower more women in an area where the unemployment is a staggering 75%. Travel With Purpose also aided them in selling the products the artisans created in the US.
Victims of Sex Trafficking in Cambodia & the Philippines (2014) – Amount Raised (+ $16K USD)
Our first campaign happened in 2014 and was the onset of our philanthropic work and what inspired us to become a non-profit organization. We raised over $16k USD and donated part of the proceeds to one of the leading NGOs who fights sex trafficking globally, International Justice Mission, in order for them to launch a rescue mission to save girls from brothels. With the rest of the monies we bought supplies for 110 girls and 20 staff members in a shelter in Cambodia who chose to remain anonymous and educational tools for the young women at My Refuge House in the Philippines.
