Akola Dallas Pop-Up Production!
In Uganda, Akola has built three different Akola vocational training centers where over 400 women come daily to earn living wages to produce Akola products.
Working in Dallas looks differently though. In Dallas, one of the biggest obstacles for Akola members to maintain dependable employment is lack of transportation.
So, Akola meets our women in their communities. Through a growing network of non-profit partners, Akola is able to set-up satellite pop-up production sites where 20-25 women can come, produce Akola's luxury jewelry, and earn a living wage to support their families. We've had 7 facilities in South, West, and Central Dallas to date.
It's just one of the ways that Akola is adapting the model to support women in Dallas.
