Candles for Peace & Prosperity

"...50  women in a place of conflict have been given the opportunity to start their own businesses. All will be able to earn an income that is above the minimum wage in Iraq, and some of the most skilled candle-makers have the opportunity to earn twice that amount – close to the average wage in Iraq – simply by investing in more candle molds," writes Prosperity Candles.  The mission of this for profit business is, "...offer women in places of distress the opportunity to thrive."
