Women's News & Interviews

Burundi, one of the poorest countries in the world,
to teach new design skills, and help create a market for their products.

At Kika Paprika we celebrate the spirit of those who triumph, especially women. We're not feminists, but we know many of our sisters around the globe don't have the freedom or opportunities that we have to follow our dreams and bring change to the world. Issues such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, sex trafficking, labor trafficking, and abuse keep women around the world enslaved from becoming who they are meant to be. We recognize that these issues aren't just happening in far away places, but often times in our own cities and neighborhoods here in America. Kika doesn't want to be just another clothing company focused on making money at the expense of others. Kika's founder, Kim Shaw, knew from the beginning that she wanted a business that focused on economic opportunities for women, and a social consciousness for everyone who would be involved in making that possible.
"I want to see women who are filled with potential,
live their dreams."

~Kim Shaw, Kika Paprika Founder and President

In this segment of the blog we would like to include quotes, stories, and interviews about women who inspire all of us to live our dreams and make this world a better place.
