"I alone cannot change the world..." - Mother Teresa

" I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters and create many ripples" - Mother Teresa

An estimated 30-20 million people are enslaved globally and about 50% of these enslaved people live in India. Something needs to change. This is why The Skipping Stone is working to make an impact and decrease these numbers.

All products are not made directly by our women, yet the proceeds of the company helps us reach our goal of creating as many jobs as possible. Our Jubilee line products are all made by these women. They are seeking an escape from extreme poverty. They are broken. They have no hope. They have no freedom.

This is why we are fighting human trafficking with urgency and breaking down strongholds by empowering women and children by giving them hope and freedom. The captives will be set free and the broken are made beautiful.

The profits we make go directly to these women and children. We partner with nonprofits who seek to make an impact in long term measures. We look beyond the short term solutions that often only create more problems, and work towards freedom in the long term.

Mother Teresa said, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”

What a powerful quote. This quote embodies the message and inspiration of The Skipping Stone. We aim to make an impact, to make ripples in the work that we do. To change the world, to change the lives of these women and children one ripple at a time. But just as Mother Teresa said, we alone cannot change the world. We need your help, your support and commitment. Cast stones with us across the water. Your purchases, your support directly impacts the women who have handmade your product.  Join us in giving them freedom. Make a Ripple with The Skipping Stone.

Check out our products, we have Lifestyle Bags and Wallets, Handmade Journals, and an array of Jewelry.
