With the launch of our new website, we wanted to also showcase on of our favorite brands. Each month we will be showcasing a new brand that we carry and share with you the awesome things they are doing!
Our first company that we love: Esperos Bags!
More than 75 million children in the developing world lack access to a quality education. At ESPEROS, we believe that education is the key to overcoming the cycle of poverty and that it should be available to everyone.
To help make this vision a reality, we create stylish, functional, and durable products, and donate a percentage of each sale to fund education initiatives around the world.
Every ESPEROS product sold helps fund one year of education for a child in the developing world.
HOW DOES ESPEROS DONATE?
ESPEROS donates a percentage of each sale to The Nobelity Project, a nonprofit based in Austin, Texas, that works to bridge gaps in information and infrastructure to ensure education for all. Founded by Turk and Christy Pipkin in 2005, The Nobelity Project has partnered with Nobel laureates and other leaders, advocates, and humanitarians to produce three award-winning documentaries about pressing global social justice issues.
WHERE DOES ESPEROS AND THE NOBELITY PROJECT WORK?
Currently, ESPEROS partners with and supports The Nobelity Project’s education initiatives in Kenya, where the organization is working with more than 25 rural school communities to build classrooms, libraries, science and computer labs, as well as clean water systems.
So far, The Nobelity Project has built more than 100 classrooms that have been used by more than 8,000 students and their families. In addition to infrastructure projects, ESPEROS is committed to supporting academic achievement through The Nobelity Project’s scholarship programs and incentives.
