Ellilta Products was established in February, 2012 as an income-generating branch of Ellilta Women at Risk (EWAR) which is a local Ethiopian NGO that helps women find gainful job opportunities after leaving a life of prostitution. Ellilta Products was started to create job opportunities for women while simultaneously generating income for EWAR by producing scarves and various styles of jewelry. Now, Ellilta Products is the producer/supplier of scarves and jewelry for different clients around the world. All profit goes back into EWAR to help rehabilitate more women as well as grow their outreach to bring more women into the workforce.
