Halle Butvin, One Mango Tree, A Fair Trade Clothing Company

[W]atching her become a leader, and develop the confidence not just at the workplace, but also at home, it's been really amazing to see how she has completely changed her circumstances just from having a steady income.
- Halle Butvin, One Mango Tree

Halle Butvin is the Founder and Director of One Mango Tree, a fair trade clothing company. One Mango Tree uses a fair trade model to provide income-generating opportunities for women in impoverished and conflict areas around the globe.  At the moment, their work is focused in Uganda. 

In addition to working on One Mango Tree, Halle often works as a development consultant focused on economic development in conflict areas.  She spent much of 2010 in Pakistan assisting women-owned garment businesses to develop their products and export potential.
