Who We Are
My name is Kristin and I have opened the store Sweet Mango Designs based in Collingswood, NJ. After traveling to Haiti twice in 2013 to adopt our daughter, I developed a love for the people and culture of Haiti. Our family returned again in 2017 and continued to learn about the culture and the resilency of the Haitian people. We visited the Apparent Project/Papillon and met the workers that make the jewelry we sell. It was an amazing place and we have decided to partner with them and a few other co-ops to be an avenue to sell their items.
The primary goal of Sweet Mango Designs is to: to provide hope and dignity to Haitian families through job creation. We believe that by providing a way for artisans to sell their products and receive a fair wage, we can help break the cycle of poverty.
We are a nonprofit using any proceeds to send children in Haiti to school. Education and job opportunities will change lives. Your purchase truly makes a difference.
Our beautiful gifts come from co-ops in Haiti: Papillon, Mama Zwazo, 2nd Story Goods, Singing Rooster Coffee.
