Peace Corps Talent Fuels Prosperity Candle’s Mission to Empower Women Worldwide

Prosperity Candle is a social venture designed to empower women entrepreneurs from areas affected by conflict and natural disaster by helping women set up independent businesses that help them not only survive, but thrive. We sustain our work through the sales of our beautiful handmade candles, soaps, baskets and candle accessories.

Prosperity Candle is lucky to have the talent of two RPCVs leading the team. Both RPCVs were inspired by their Peace Corps experiences to pursue unconventional career paths to create economic opportunity for women.

Prosperity Candle is a social enterprise that empowers women as entrepreneurs by offering meaningful gifts that give back to conscious consumers
