Bobears are not THE One’s usual limited edition home fashion shelf fillers, but as the company’s mission is To Change the World Together you shouldn’t be surprised to see these little goodwill ambassadors on show. Besides being symbols of love and kindness, these adorable teddies, handmade by underprivileged women in India, create jobs, providing a steady income and a brighter future for those in need.
Thanks to the Bobear Project principles of local partnerships, development - which includes handicraft schooling - and profit sharing, these women are given the opportunity to become entrepreneurs, boosting their self-confidence and ensuring self-sustainability. Not only are Bobears’ partners paid for making the bear and again when it is sold, but a portion of the sales profits goes towards funding further entrepreneurial projects.
Buying a Bobear will make you an essential part of creating a future for a woman in India – a woman who trusts there will be a demand for more Bobears in the future. To give a Bobear a home visit THE One Jumeirah Theatre and help less fortunate women free themselves from poverty. Hug a Bobear, embrace the world!
