The Bloom Manifesto

Diana Saw from Singapore founded 'Bloom' in Cambodia. It is not an NGO but a self sustaining social enterprise, to provide livelihood for poor Cambodians and help Cambodia. See Diana has listed 'the Bloom Manifesto' (see below)... which it is hard not to agree with

1. We believe in the right of all people to a decent life, free of poverty and with access to education
2. We believe you will be enriched helping the poor
3. We believe women hold up half the sky
4. We believe workers should always be paid a fair wage
5. We believe if you knew the truth, you would not be an accessory to the exploitation of workers
6. We believe exploitation is evil
7. We believe in the power of good over evil
8. We believe in the power of the individual to bring about change
9. We believe your bag is a reflection of you - are you really a sheep?
10. We believe quality is worth paying for
11. We believe in love at first sight - at least where our bags are concerned!
12. We believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of handbags!
