Our business model has always been that 100% of the proceeds from our sales go directly to the artisans in Cambodia. Today, that’s still true! But as we draw closer to nearly 10 years working in the trafficking prevention industry, we’ve learned that protecting, empowering and educating women holistically requires a tremendous amount of resources — resources that go above and beyond the sales of jewelry. You see, the complexities of poverty, trafficking and the issues facing the developing world are so much bigger. So while our program has been funded entirely by sales up to this point, we want to make partnering with us in intentional, powerful ways...possible!
Our team has carefully assessed the needs for running our program, as well as the dreams to see Landmine Design grow and expand in the coming years; and now — we’re bringing you brand new ways you can invest in the eradication of poverty, prevention of human trafficking, access to education and the overall health of the artisans we so love. We invite you to read through our list of necessities and dreams; and open the door for you to be able to partner with a specific need on a one-time or recurring basis. We’ve broken it down into 4 giving categories: Sustainability, Education, Operation and Emergency.
Aiding our women in the process of becoming self-sufficient.
Often women who come out of trafficking situations or are trapped in cycles of poverty need careful help and attention as they regain dignity and learn to dream again. At Landmine, we intentionally invest in the women we serve by teaching them handmade skills, giving them access to basic education (both academic and life skills), as well as training them to use the resources they have access to to start their own businesses and supplement their Landmine income as they dream about their futures.
YOU can join us in teaching self-sufficiency and create cycles of sustainability with us by giving for our artisans to start their own businesses. This looks different for each woman as she decides what to pursue. Your donation could provide…
Provide livestock for a familyGive now
Your donation provides livestock (pigs, chickens, cows, ducks) for a Landmine artisan to raise. This provides food for the family as well as the opportunity to sell at local markets. $25 provides livestock for 1 family.

Contribute to the business loan fundGive now
These funds are made available to our Landmine artisans in order to invest in specific business ideas that they dream up, plan out and bring to our team. This is an ongoing program, so one-time donations of any amount will be utilized to keep it running.
We believe wholeheartedly that education is the way to break generational poverty.
At Landmine Design, we employ young girls in order to give them the opportunity to provide income for their families while also supporting them through school all the way to graduation. We also teach basic reading and writing skills to our older, uneducated artisans in order to open opportunities for future employment. YOU can join us in providing education to artisans young and old, breaking cycles of poverty and replacing them with opportunity.
