The idea of having a shop selling quality products that will not only bring joy to the consumers, but also to the producers came when the founder was on a trip to Bhutan in 2015. It was also through the wonderful connection in Bhutan that we were introduced to the founder of Ana by Karma, Ms Quinn. This encounter confirmed that this will be the right way to go by not only selling products from mainstream producers and sharing our profits, but also to help those non-mainstream producers to increase their exposures and market share of their products. This will help to increase their income and help to lift their families out of poverty and gain more certainty in life.
Thus, this give rise to That Happiness Centre Shop. With the philosophy of Buying a Gift of Happiness, Giving the Gift of Happiness. We hope that with this online, e-Commerce platform, we will be able to source for more products that are produced by social enterprises that takes care of:
1) Empowering and looking after women's need; and
2) Caring for the needs of children.
We look forward to be able to play a small role helping to make a difference in the lives of these two social causes.
