Our Story


Hello, World Changers!

Join the movement to end poverty.

OUR MISSION

At Elisha C., we are on a mission to end poverty through job creation, education, and empowerment - giving a hand-up to break the cycle of poverty. We believe there is transformative power in a business model that cares about the people & the planet.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our purpose is to give villagers, refugees, and marginalized individuals the opportunity to gain self-sufficiency through employment that provides fair & living wage. But we are far more than just products, we embody a lifestyle. We believe every purchase we make can have the power to change someone else's life for the better.

OUR PRODUCTS

We know where every single product comes from. Since 2013, our founder, Elisha has been personally meeting with producers throughout Haiti, weaving through traffic in the hot and humid air to go from one artisan workshop to the next. Because we value relationships at the core of everything we do. We are the bridge and the platform for their stories to be told around the world. We curate collections for conscious consumers at affordable prices with contemporary designs that also reflect the culture from which they are made. We use sustainable practices, such as recycling and upcycling in our production process for waste reduction. We celebrate the unique qualities of our handmade goods & the makers behind them.

OUR IMPACT

To date, we have invested over $170K into long-term solutions to ending poverty in Haiti. We giveback to a small village called Fond Doux, Haiti, where we established a scholarship program and have given out over 300 scholarships to send children to school, from pre-school to university. We even hosted the first graduation ever in our village in 2016!
