Mission & Impact

Mission Statement

Timeless designs made to end the cycle of poverty and human trafficking

through hope, healing, and restoration.


Lev aims to end human trafficking by going straight to the root cause, which is poverty. By giving women around the world a liveable wage to sew our clothes, we begin to end the cycle of poverty in their families- starting with them and passing it down to generations to come!

We currently partner with Yoke Apparel Manufacturing, Fairsew, and Asha Garment Factory to make our clothes.

In Vietnam, Yoke Apparel brings in women displaced from their communities due to culturally unacceptable pregnancies. Oftentimes these women get trapped in the life of human trafficking to provide for themselves and their babies. Yoke has stepped into the gap by hiring these women, giving them a liveable wage, healthcare, and PTO, and ensuring they work within reasonable hours (40 hours) per week. 

Fairsew is based out of Cambodia. They work with deadstock fabric to end the waste caused by fast fashion brands' over-consumption. Based in the bustling city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Fairsew is a full-service ethical garment manufacturer that values its employees by:
  1. Providing a safe working environment with clean amenities, pure drinking water, fans, and a kitchen for their hour-long lunch break
  2. Offering fair wages well above minimum levels for Cambodian garment workers that allow them to not only pay for their food and rent but also education for their children as well as save money for their future goals
  3. Opportunity for further learning and skill development
  4. Ensures no child labor or forced labor enters their workforce
  5. Rewards staff for their hard work with benefits well above the standards in Cambodia
  6. Provides them with a membership to Hope Hospital where everyone has a spending allowance to see a doctor and buy medicine. If they spend their allowance Fairsew subsidizes 10% of any additional medical bills.

Asha Garment Factory (AGF) is based in India. Their mission is to rescue and transform the lives of women and children in India. All income generated through AGF supports 23 Children's homes with a total of 230 children in India. These are children rescued from various difficult backgrounds including children of women in the commercial sex trade, children from families affected by HIV/AIDS, and children who have been abandoned by their parents. 
The children are given a safe space and are looked after by a loving house mom, giving them a family of their own. They are provided healthy food and good quality English medium education. Asha Garment Factory also helps equip at-risk women with skills that could lead them to employment and eventual economic self-sustenance. These include courses in basic computers, desktop publishing, beautician, spoken English, tailoring, and maggam work. Close to 89% of students going through Asha's courses have found jobs after graduation.
This is what Lev currently has set up.

As we move forward, our goal is to branch out internationally and domestically. We want to partner with Non-Profits, on a local level, to employ women coming out of sex trafficking to work directly for Lev. Right now, it's a one-woman operation, but as Lev grows we want to be moving towards creating programs that will allow Lev to hire at-risk women in the area. Lev has already started building relationships with Stories Foundation and Corries House which are working at a domestic level to give a safe space and job opportunities to women who have suffered from human trafficking.

The more Lev grows the more impact we want to make both internationally and domestically!
