|Archel Brenard CEO of Bombchel Factory|
We all have heard the phrase "if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, if you teach him to fish, you feed him for a lifetime." Archel Brenard is all about that life, teaching one to fish and giving them a solid foundation. Some whine, some moan, others complain and Archel Bernard raised over $41,339 to fund a much needed project, hiring disadvantage individuals at Bombchel Factory aka African Fashion Wonderland, right in Monrovia, Liberia.
The Bombchel Factory is committed to training some of the most disadvantaged people and changing their lives. A team of expert tailors and excited trainees produces much more than they can sell locally, so they have set their sights on the rest of the world. Bombchel is not an NGO that is here today and gone tomorrow. They are Liberians who are not looking for handouts. These trainees are developing a trade and a way to support themselves and their families, and they are creating gorgeous, contemporary African fashions for a global market. Bombchel Factory is changing Liberia with one design at a time.
