Women for Women International and Kate Spade

Deborah Lloyd, creative director of Kate Spade, and Zainab Salbi, who founded Women for Women International (WfWI) have been collaborating to help female survivors of war rebuild their lives. "WfWI takes a holistic approach: educating women about their legal and reproductive rights and providing psychological counseling, job-skills training, and microcredit loans." Kate Spade, the accessory-and apparelmaker, contracted with a WfWI micro-credit and jobs program in Bosnia and Herzegovina to make mittens, hats, and scarves.
