We Are One Collective

The life of a refugee is characterised by restrictions, including access to work. This project offers opportunities to earn a livelihood and engage in interesting and useful activity. 100% of the proceeds from Drop Earrings goes to Olive Tree Women's Craft Collective in Istanbul and supports the activities of refugee families who are a part of the wider Small Projects Istanbul community.

Meet Pru

Pru Waldorf co-founded weareone:collective in 2016. The group aims to bring together individuals and organisations to collaborate in finding solutions to social problems and to create opportunities for people who are refugees, giving them some agency and the possibility of self-sufficiency. Founded on the ethos 'give agency not aid' the primary focus of the group is the facilitation of projects which allow for creativity and self-expression, income creation and skills sharing opportunities. Aimed at bringing together communities & establishing ties through creativity and collaboration we hope to foster a more harmonious co-existence between the affected communities. Through our work we look to create opportunities for self-expression & self-reliance rather than keeping people dependent on aid.
