At JANE & CLAY CO., our mission is more than creating high-quality, Travel fashionable backpacks for women. Our company also seeks to create an atmosphere of joy and compassion, and inspire you to be of service to others. That’s why, for every backpack you purchase, you help to feed a single mother’s. 10% of all our profits is donated to families in need in Mexico.
Every week, our team visits impoverished communities in Tijuana, Mexico, where we provide food, clothing, and books to needy local households. Many of these households are headed by single mothers, just like the home our founder, Janeth, was raised in.
Janeth commented, “We don’t want our customers to think that they’re just buying a bag; we want to involve them and have them know that their purchase has humanitarian value as well. Without realizing it, they are brightening the day of many poverty-stricken individuals.”
According to the National Institute of Statistics, Geography, and Informatics (INEGI), over the course of 35 years, the percentage of female-headed households in Mexico has increased from 13% to 23%. With this often comes an increase in poverty, as single-parent households struggle to put food on the table on a sole income.
This is why JANE & CLAY CO. employs single mothers in Mexico and the United States, giving them a sustainable source of income by handcrafting luxurious, eco-friendly bags made from superior materials. So when you wear your JANE & CLAY CO. backpack, you can be proud that you’ve supported single-mom households in need.
