OUR STORY

Text

 

A young mother of two wanted to add to her family through adoption. After spending a week at an orphanage in Haiti, she was surprised to find out that these children had mothers who were alive, but just too poor to care for their children. She set her heart on providing jobs for at risk mothers, so that they would be able to keep their kids. Shelley Jean started Papillon because no child should ever be abandoned because of poverty. Every time you order from Papillon Marketplace, you help provide the opportunity of a lifetime for mothers and fathers in Haiti.
