How We Give
For every bag you buy, you are helping a single-mother household in need.
How do we give?
Every week, the JANE & CLAY CO. team visits impoverished communities in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, where we provide food, clothing, and books to needy local families. Many of these families are headed by single mothers who struggle to get by day-to-day.
Who gives to these families?
JANE & CLAY CO. has several brand ambassadors based in the Baja California area of Mexico who are knowledgeable about the local communities and are able to visit families on a weekly basis. To learn more about our brand ambassadors, visit our About Us page.
How do we create sustainable change?
JANE & CLAY CO. also employs single mothers in both Mexico and the United States, giving them a sustainable source of income by handcrafting our 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.
Why single-mother households?
According to the National Institute of Statistics, Geography, and Informatics (INEGI), over the course of the past 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 with a sole income.
Although there exist many charities to support children, the elderly and the disabled, families, particularly single-parent households, are often overlooked. By supporting these families, we are not only supporting single women, but their children-the future generation-as well.
What inspires us to give?
Our founder, Janeth Moyal, was raised in a single-parent household in Mazatlan, Mexico. Janeth is passionate about giving back to her community, and she has been volunteering in orphanages since she was 14 years old.
Janeth is also passionate about fashion and beauty, having worked as a professional model. As a result, she is combining her love of fashion and giving back to provide jobs to single mothers, so that they can stay home with their children and provide for their families. What inspires Janeth the most is seeing how positive and hardworking these single mothers are despite the poverty and difficult circumstances that they face.
