OUR MISSION

By empowering and developing women's leadership through education and self-sustainability, Project Três helps them to become economically independent. We provide training and technical support using fair trade programs. By teaching women how to create accessories out of recycled materials, we want to develop and create new social and economic opportunities for them.

 

"Três" is the number three in Portuguese.
These accessories represent:
The past – for what the material used to be,
the present – for a unique design product,
and the future – creating a greener and more sustainable 
environment for our generation and those to come.

HOW DID WE START

The idealizer behind Project Três is the Brazilian, Carla Maria.

After working for a few years as a fashion designer at a well-known Brazilian company and spending a season living abroad, Carla drew upon her strong sense of female protagonism and decided to change not only her life but the lives of other women too. Since November 2015, Carla’s been living in India teaching marginalized and socially excluded women how to design and produce accessories.
