Meet Our Founder
After traveling to Cambodia in 2007 with the sole purpose to explore, never in my wildest dreams did I expect to experience such a life-altering trip. Discovering the extreme poverty in the rural communities there commanded my attention. With no hope for employment, women were falling prey to human trafficking at an alarming rate. I felt it within every inch of my body that I had to do something.
Fast forward to my next trip to Cambodia and on this occasion, I discovered something more promising. I learnt about the extraordinary Blue Butterfly Pea Flower. As I continued to unearth more and more about this remarkable botanical plant, it became increasingly obvious that if I could harness it’s benefits into products to benefit consumers, that we could give the women of Cambodia the tools and opportunities to harvest it and generate income for themselves and their families.
I’ve never felt more proud to say that we’re now accomplishing that. With our Saathëa Prosperity Garden Initiative women are able to continually harvest the Blue Butterfly Pea Flower for use in our tea. Seeing not only how the Initiative has positively impacted their lives, but also the astounding results in our expanding product line, is incredibly humbling. I invite you to learn more about the work we do here.
