As a small, yet ever-growing business, "Noa Sharon Designs" sees high importance in giving back and working with and for the community she belongs to.

Giving back to the community you live in (locally as well as world wide) has a satisfying and enriching value.
Noa also believes it is important to raise the awareness of these great initiatives / organizations and therefore share it all out here on our web page.

Turning The Tables (Hofchot-et-Hayotsrot)

Turning the Tables is a social initiative aimed at enabling women who have broken out of the cycle of prostitution the option to create a productive and independent life for themselves. The initiative is located at a fashion design studio, where women experience a learning environment, go through vocational training and, eventually, earn a livelihood. The studio's fashion brand will make a socially significant statement regarding the scope and damage of prostitution and will bring about a change in public perception of women who were sex workersTurning the Tables organized a gala for fund raising to support the initiative.

As part of this evening, there will be a lottery with great prices, and each ticket’s value will support the initiative.

We donated a voucher to be used in our shop.
