Moriya Ethiopian Accessories creates sustainable jobs for at-risk, single mothers in Ethiopia so they can provide for their vulnerable children with dignity. These women were forced to make desperate decisions to work on the streets, just so they and their babies could survive. These extremely vulnerable children were being raised in a desperate cycle, unable to free themselves or dream about their own future.
Through Moriya, an Ethiopian run accessories business (distributed by Loving Shepherd Ministries), these mothers have been given a chance to have a dignified, sustainable job where they can find healing, hope and a different future for their children. LSM comes alongside these families with additional counseling, training and support, as well as provides medical, educational and spiritual support so their children can be raised up to be all God has made them to be. Our end goal is simple: we want to see these families thrive so they can in turn go out and transform their communities for Christ!
The artisans at Moriya hand-weave beautiful fabrics on traditional Ethiopian looms and use genuine leather sourced in Addis Ababa. From this, artful scarves, handbags and totes are created. In addition, they are crafting new accessories - jewelry, pouches and even men's wallets.
Moriya prides itself in a high quality product - and one that truly makes a life-changing difference in a family's life abroad.
