The Salvation Army trade Department
OTHERS PAKISTAN is a Salvation Army initiative which aims to transform lives and alleviate poverty by promoting and utilizing the concept of Fair Trade. It’s an ongoing practical journey from poverty to hope in many of disadvantaged lives.
WHAT is OTHERS .
Others is The Salvation Army's initiative for trade that promotes hope. It is said that the Founder of The Salvation Army, General William Booth, once sent a telegram to officers around the world to remind them of the main focus of their work. The telegram contained only one word - "others." That single word captured the foundation for the entire organization.
Through the years the word has appeared as a slogan in many different settings, and several writers have described it as "The Salvation Army's DNA." In other words, it's a name that is deeply rooted and that points towards our foundation. We're not running Others for our own sake, but for the benefit of others.
TSA Trading OTHERS Pakistan is operating in accordance with the TSA values .
The majority of Pakistan is very poor and live under the poverty line, earning less than a dollar a day. They have little access to employment or country development initiatives. Therefore this program is designed as a sustainable business to uplift poor communities and contribute to the skills, potential talent, and making the world more aware of Pakistani culture and crafts. It is making use of established community relationships and the skills acquired by persons who have been trained by the Salvation Army Pakistan.
