We operate in small garment manufacturing villages in Northern Thailand, where seamstresses generally work in factories that recognize the minimum wage laws. However, some women are physically unable to work in a factory, or simply can’t leave home each day for 10+ hours. Some local garment manufacturers will hire stay-at-home seamstresses knowing they can pay exceptionally low wages almost unnoticed – sometimes paying 8 cents per of pants sewn, well below Thailand's legal minimum.

Women and their families deserve a chance at comfortable living wages. FSO exists to break this cycle of limited opportunity and empower communities through sustainable job creation. Hammock making has become a growing source of income for our team of seamstresses, and with your help, we can continue to grow these opportunities for more women and their families.

Thanks for reading and happy hanging!
