Q. Why do we need Friends of Basha? I thought there was already Basha Boutique?

A. Our partner business, Basha Boutique, is not able to provide all the care that is required for women that have experienced trauma. Basha Boutique provides safe, supportive employment for women, but typically, a time of training and a process for restoration are needed first. Friends of Basha is the stepping stone to full-time work at Basha Boutique.

 

Q. If sales are good for Basha Boutique, why do I need to donate to Friends of Basha?
