Pebble Child: Empowering Women, Creating Smiles Worldwide
Pebble Child, brought to life by Hathay Bunano, is a heartwarming tale of compassion, creativity, and empowerment. This Bangladeshi initiative has set out to make a difference, one handmade toy at a time. The story begins in 2004 when Samantha Morshed founded Hathay Bunano, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing fairly paid, flexible, and local employment opportunities for rural women facing poverty and adversity.
Pebble Child's journey is a heartwarming testament to the power of entrepreneurship, community, and compassion. With each purchase of a Pebble product, you're not just acquiring a beautiful toy; you're joining a global movement that supports rural women, empowers families, and makes our world a little brighter.
