You Shop-We Give
Little Babe Boutique is thrilled to announce a new giving back program in Africa that will allocate a percentage of your purchase at our store to new mothers that have little to nothing for their newborn babies when they deliver. Here at Little Babe we believe it takes a village...and we thank you for being apart of ours! Together we are making a difference.
Little Babe Boutique has partnered with TRC and ICEF to supply items from our store to Maternity Packs destined for mothers in Tekera. The first shipment of clothing and blankets was delivered by Little Babe Boutique in February, 2018 and will continue each year as a regular contribution from the Little Babe Boutique community. Each purchase you make will directly address this critical need, welcoming new and precious people into the world with the love and warmth that we enjoy at home. With heartfelt gratitude, I thank you for your support!
The Tekera Resource Center and the Maternity Pack Program:
Tekera is an isolated village in Southwestern Uganda that is home to a unique community resource center supported by the International Community Empowerment Foundation (ICEF). The Tekera Resource Center (TRC) has been serving the community for over a decade with health, education, water and economic development projects as key features.
One program run by the Center is the Maternity Pack Program. There are many women in this community who approach their delivery day without any clothing for their babies and will give birth without having a single blanket to wrap their newborn in. NO mother or father should ever have to experience this kind of worry or heaviness in their heart. To address this need, TRC established a Maternity Pack program where expectant mothers are given clothing and blankets to care for their new babies.
Each Maternity Pack Contains:
- 2 pieces of clothing
- 1 pair of socks
- 1 baby hat
- 1 sheet/blanket
- 1 bib
We are sourcing other opportunities to give back in Africa and other places around the world. Stay tuned to see how far your contribution is going to support mothers and children who lack access to clothing.
