Doreen empowers local women who handcraft all of her designs using traditional African techniques. Through employing them and creating a positive impact on their every day lives, she is ultimately promoting positive change in her Zanzibar community. Doreen shared in an interview with EDUN that "It has always very rewarding to see my employees have access to clean water and decent health facilities. Something they never had before. I just didn’t realize the impact of the company on the lives of the women and a few men who work with me. Just seeing change in communities, enabling people to live decently, this is the greatest emotion in my life. When you can link it with beautiful products—it is a dream come true."
