Travel to empower
Currently, we can provide monthly jobs to six women in our project, even though 93% of them would like full-time jobs with us. The reason is that we can’t employ more artisans if we don’t sell more of our products. That's why one of the new pillars of our work is to create more job opportunities within the Project, in addition to making products. Socially responsible tourism opened up a new range of possibilities for our women, giving them another source of income as well as increasing their confidence as individuals.
In partnership with Follow me Por Aí, we created a program that combines tourism and volunteering in India, inside our women development center in Goa. One of the biggest challenges for organizations is to have specialized skills inside social impact areas, and that isn't different for us. Having the chance to count on the hands, ideas, and expertise of each traveler with the goal of bringing more sustainable practices and opportunities to our ladies, will directly impact their lives while using conscious tourism activities as a tool for our empowerment work.

Cooking classes in Goa
The best Indian cuisines are homemade. With us, you'll be with local women in our project, located behind the hustle and bustle of Anjuna, in a small village community. Here you will discover local flavors, aromas, learn traditional food practices, about the Indian food culture, and ayurvedic properties of spices in a full five dish menu.
Project Três values responsible tourism activities, each cooking class contributes directly to the local community and women in the project.

Take a stance and contribute to sustainable, fair trade fashion. Conscious consumerism is here to stay. Consumers want to know what their clothes are made of, where, by whom, and if done ethically.

James Obaigwa - Soapstone Teacher and Partner in Nairobi, Kenya
"I love connections, I love meeting and working with new people/projects. It's been over 1 year working with the mamas at Project Três, empowering women by teaching them to paint and design soapstone. It's been an amazing experience working with the mamas and seeing them eager to learn new things. They have their own stories like any human being and they are very grateful for the project and for the work they are doing. They have ups and downs like anyone else but they take their work in this project more seriously than anyone else I know. I enjoy working with them and you. To me, my work with the project extends past my desire to make money. I want to continue to see the good work and hope to help everyone in the project find prosperity. I am forever grateful to Project Três and my work with the mamas."
Mariana Fischer - Hai Africa’s Founder in Nairobi, Kenya
"Partnering with Project Três is one of the greatest achievements of my life because its impact has transformed the lives of 15 mothers. Providing them with jobs, money to buy food, clean water and the ability to pay for their children’s schooling. This partnership has also given us the strength to dream bigger and achieve more every day!"
Eric Faria - Worldpackers’ Founder in São Paulo, Brazil
"I think that Project Três is a true example of how we can all make the change we want to see in the world. While the project helps local communities in need, it also works towards a sustainable world. It is amazing to have the opportunity to donate and invest in people that are working right now on the issues I cannot commit my time to."

The purchases they make from Freeset helps to provide dignified employment and enhance the quality of life for women from the marginalized communities of Kolkata. We appreciate their work and commitment to change one woman at a time."

Lisa Jaspers - Founder and CEO Folkdays Berlin
"We at FOLKDAYS support Carla and Project Três because we share a very similar mission. Bringing livelihood to places where people have great ability but are a lot less privileged than us. Please support their work because the world needs them!"
"I love Project Tres because I've seen it grow and personally can see the positive effect it has on the women they have in their organization, It gives them new skills and lively hoods and most importantly a support system. It's important for my brand to work with and support families and small organizations so that we can be ethical, allow these trades to continue and have community. I truly believe in what Project Tres is doing and it's close to home as we are both based in the same place to its nice to support your own community."
