We believe that it is our responsibility to give back to those around us, allowing communities both near and far to build up their inner strength and unlock the mighty inside.
Pride Industries – Contributing to the Employment of Disabled Adults
We are proud to work with Pride Industries to hand-pack each of our hand-stitched tea bags. Pride Industries is one of the largest nonprofit employers of individuals with disabilities in the United States. They employ over 3,200 individuals with disabilities and give them the training and support they need to lead productive, independent lives. By working with this incredible organization, we aim to empower hundreds of individuals with disabilities to gain confidence and build self-reliance.
She’s the First – Empowering Women through Education
70% of tea garden workers are women, yet women rarely, if ever, rise to supervisor-level roles at tea estates. At Mighty Leaf Tea, we believe that giving women access to more education will empower them to make a difference not just in their own lives, but in the lives of their families and communities.
That’s why we’ve chosen to work with She’s the First, a global non-profit that provides scholarships, mentorship, and empowerment to girls in developing countries. These girls will be the first in their families to graduate from high school and move on to higher education. We partner with She’s the First because we share a common belief that women are unstoppable when they have the right tools to fulfill their whole potential.
Each year, we sponsor ten She’s the First scholars, providing access to textbooks, tuition, and the support programs they need inside and outside of the classroom.
