Mama Zwazo Foundation

People are central to all we do.  We believe a business that honors its employees above profit is a business built to last.  To prioritize our employees we offer fair wages, health care, a safe work environment, paid lunches, vacation days, sick leave and maternity leave.

 

Petite Palm partners with The Mama Zwazo Foundation to offer holistic support to employees and communities.  Mama Zwazo seeks to renew hope, rebuild families, and restore justice alongside our artisan team. Through the Mama Zwazo Initiative, we focus on holistic support in three key areas: mind, body, and soul. Our programs offer healthcare, maternity leave, educational support, improved financial literacy, and leadership development.  The Mama Zwazo foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.

Because of these programs and benefits, our artisans are able to assist family and friends with school tuition, gain financial independence, work with family to start small businesses, address personal health concerns with trusted care providers, and gain the confidence to pursue their passions.
