Ila Asplund - Founder of Half Sky Journeys - Traveling with a Purpose

Ila Asplund - Founder of Half Sky Journeys - Traveling with a Purpose | Women in Business | Scoop.it

Ila Asplund is the founder and CEO of Half Sky Journeys, building a global network of changemakers who travel with a purpose: to boost the impact of women-empowering programs worldwide. 

 

What’s different about Half Sky Journeys?

Ila: “When I was three, my mom had a stroke that left her unable to form words, like a circuit severed from her brain to her mouth. After recovering (she is alive and well!), she told me that losing her voice—her ability to communicate—was more devastating than having half her body paralyzed. When I was older, a study abroad to Indonesia sparked my wanderlust, and since then I’ve always jumped at any cross-cultural opportunity. From ‘getting by’ where I don’t speak the language, to becoming an English teacher for people hungry to learn—it’s really through travel I’ve learned again how important our voices are.

Samantha Morshed - CEO PebbleChild (Hathay Bunano)

Samantha Morshed - CEO PebbleChild (Hathay Bunano) | Women in Business | Scoop.it

Samantha Morshed's interest in social enterprise started in 2004 with a basic question ‘how do you create sustainable employment without micro-finance debt or economic migration for rural women?’. To solve that question Samantha founded Hathay Bunano (now Pebble Child) with a personal initial investment of $500. A decade later Hathay Bunano has evolved into a thriving social enterprise, comprising a non-profit organization in Bangladesh and three limited companies in Bangladesh, UK and Malaysia, with employment creation for more than 6000 artisans in more than 60 rural production centers throughout Bangladesh and export of handmade toys around the world.
