ABOUT SEEME 
SeeMe is a fair trade certified luxury brand and social enterprise that strives to improve the life of women who have been victims of violence. It employs women, usually single mothers, who have been shunned by their patriarchal societies and, once out of their shelter homes, could not find a job to provide for themselves and their children. Through trainings that later result in employment, SeeMe women are empowered, they learn a craft and eventually earn a steady monthly salary. 

ABOUT UNiTE 
UNiTE is a United Nations campaign aiming at ending all types of violence against women through law and policy enforcement, mobilization and partnerships. In fact, UNiTE has put together a big network of women’s organizations, youth groups, men, media people, government representatives as well celebrities and artists to support the campaign. Orange is the color of Elimination of Violence Against Women.
