Paramo have been manufacturing garments in cooperation with the Miquelina Foundation in Bogotá, Columbia since 1992. Miquelina helps vulnerable women, giving them jobs and support to help them out of prostitution and poverty. I think this is fantastic and make me glad that I’ve got so many Paramo products. I love to see companies and people walk the talk.
A huge amount of credit goes not just to Paramo but to the nuns who’ve made all this possible. Christians and especially Catholics get a lot of criticism and bad press. This is the other side of the coin. There’s a lot of good work that is done by Christian organisations that gets no column inches or praise. Here’s a video of their work.
