Choice should not be a luxury only afforded to women born in the right country or to the right family, it should be available to all. We created Taylor Yates to change the world one women at a time. We chose to start with handbags because they are a symbol and often a rite of passage for young girls. We have found our cause, let us introduce you to the work of Women for Women International.


Taylor Yates are proud to support Women for Women International. We are currently raising funds to sponsor a woman survivor of war through the charity’s year-long holistic training programme, to equip her with the skills to earn money, regain her confidence and actively participate in her community.
In countries affected by conflict and war, Women for Women International supports the most marginalized women to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support.
Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped over 462,000 of the most socially-excluded women survivors of war in Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and Northern Iraq. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, she is able to create sustainable change for herself, her family, and community.
