Little By Little

Isabel Stigge created an orphan prevention project called Little by Little after finding out almost 80 per cent of orphans in Haiti’s orphanages have living parents. These parents don’t have the money to keep their kids, and sometimes feel giving them up will give them a better life. Isabel works with the orphanages to find out which moms have recently tried to give up their children. She offers them paid jobs making jewelry and accessories, providing them with the money they need to keep their children. Isabel brings the jewelry back to London and sells it at the Western Fair Farmer’s Market, as well as other fairs and online. She’s passionate about this project, and hopes to expand it in the near future.
