Why we ♥ IX Style
With each purchase, IX Style provides clean drinking water to children through water filtration systems and rain collection units. They partner with Asociacion Puente in Guatemala to reduce extreme poverty and malnutrition by working with indigenous women who are the most marginalized populations in the world.
IX Style works to empower women in a sustainable way through commerce and education instead of simply giving an unregulated or free handout. In order to receive a water filtration system in their homes, women must attend weekly classes where they are taught education, sanitation, nutrition, self-esteem, and protection from domestic violence. They are also taught basic accounting, the importance of a savings account, and training for jobs. Their graduation gift from this 18 month course is water filtration system installed in their home.
