The founder’s story:
Barrett Ward founded Mocha Club in 2005 – a new generation of activists giving up the cost of a few mochas, or $9 a month, to fund relief and development projects in Africa. A few years later, Barrett moved to Ethiopia for a year. While there, he ran across Women at Risk, a group that works with women exploited in the sex industry. After seeing their effectiveness and the dignity restored in these women, he learned that one of the biggest challenges to keeping these women off the streets is gainful employment. For this purpose, fashionABLE was conceived.
