Inside Frip Ethique

680x150

Bras - and other clothes - you donate here in the UK could end up getting sorted and sold in Senegal at Frip Ethique, Oxfam's social enterprise.

Frip Ethique is an Oxfam-run social enterprise in Senegal. Most of the workers are women, who sort and sell clothes donated to Oxfam - including your bras - to local market traders.

It's a great way of making sure donations make the most money possible. And it's also a great way of enabling people to earn a living.

The profits are also invested in Oxfam's work fighting poverty in Senegal. Over 500 small traders buy stock from Frip Ethique and run their own businesses.
