The impact you make


Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity Candle, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

Five years ago, Moo Kho lived in a refugee camp with her husband and daughter. Unable to further her education or pursue work, her future was limited. And having lost everything, it was difficult to see how life could improve.

Then she had the opportunity to relocate to the U.S. and start anew. A year later Moo Kho joined Prosperity Candle as an apprentice candle-maker. Today she is our Production Manager with a stake in the company, training other women in the art of candle-making.

Your purchases make Moo Kho's story - and many more - possible. A journey from hopelessness to opportunity, from refugee to entrepreneur. From simply surviving to truly thriving.

As we grow, Prosperity Candle will continue to create opportunities for women refugees here in the U.S., and support women's entrepreneurship in places like Haiti. We have seen how one candle can brighten the lives of many. Thank you for making that possible.
