These candles are made in small batches by women who resettled as refugees in the United States. They earn living wages and develop their skill sets while creating a brighter future for themselves and their families.
Based in Massachusetts, social enterprise Prosperity Candle invests in women to escape conflict and help end poverty. The women are entrepreneurs who have recently resettled from refugee camps. Candle making is a business a woman can start and expand in the safety of her own home with local materials, a critical element at times of unrest. They carefully hand-pour the wax in small batches; it is a clean-burning mixture of a coconut-soy wax blend. Lastly, they will package the candle, including their signed names on the bottom of the candles they create.
