ADAPT FOR WHATEVER COMES YOUR WAY!
What is ADAPT?
It's a range of 8 stylish cases in a variety of colourways that help women move from one role to . . . another in their lives. Whether it's protecting your computer in ADAPT laptop case or keeping your valuables safe and in one place whilst at the gym with ADAPT accessories case, ADAPT range has a useful case to help keep one organised!
We were excited (and, if we are honest, a little nervous) about launching ADAPT through a crowdfunding campaign. The nerves stemmed from not having run a crowdfunding campaign for a number of years - not since we decided to sell Secret Projects and transform the business into the wonderful Community Benefit Society it is today, as we offered the opportunity for people to purchase shares.
The nerves soon went as we embarked on the wild ride that is a crowdfunding campaign and we are absolutely delighted to shout proudly that we raised £1,200, and this has enabled us to begin production of ADAPT - our new range!
Our Makers (the name we give to the groups of women who lovingly stitch our collections of clothing, accessories and homeware) have begun work on the range and we are beyond delighted to be able to offer these amazing women fairly paid work that uses their skills effectively and provides income to support themselves, their families and children. This is what lies at our very heart and why we exist.
A huge thank you
We can't of course announce this exciting project without saying a HUGE thank you to everyone who made a contribution to our crowdfunding campaign to get production of ADAPT of the ground and up and running! We are very grateful to each and everyone of you.
So, production of our latest product range begins, and we love the thought that we have helped to make life a little easier for women as they transition from one role to another in their lives.
ADAPT for whatever comes your way!
Working with The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) to deliver their eBay for Change store
Our Head of Sales, Fritha Vincent Mason is constantly . . . looking for 'new business' for Secret Projects. By doing this and grasping new opportunities that come our way, our vision of a world where all women have the confidence and resources to make choices, thrive and contribute to the strengthening of their communities comes ever closer.
In the past few months, Fritha has been networking with Social Enterprise UK, Ebay for Change, and WFTO and the result is that Secret Projects will now deliver WFTO's eBay for Change store. The store sells beautiful fair trade products from around the globe and supports the most wonderful small businesses and artisans to receive what is fair for their products and labour. The store is now live!
This is a wonderful step for Secret Projects, as we diversify and seize this new venture with both hands, using our skills to strengthen the business for both Secret Projects in the UK and in India.
How will it work?
We will house the stock for all the small businesses selling on WFTO eBay for Change store and one of the team will fulfill each order (that basically means parcel up the order and arrange delivery with a courier)and send them lovingly on their way to customers around the world.

We look forward to working with WFTO and helping to make a massive success of their new eBay for Change store.
