With over 15 successful years in retail and leisure management, and running businesses with an excess of £6m turnover and 70 staff, Rachel Salway founder of multi award winning Roseannah fairtrade fashion brand went on a series of trips to India and Africa that changed her life. After witnessing first-hand the extreme poverty in these countries and a passion to see it eradicated, Rachel knew that doing nothing was not an option. On returning to the UK, Rachel took the plunge and quit her career, to launch her very own fairtrade and ethical fashion and accessories brand. She started to work with different organisations providing life changing skills and training, with the ultimate aim of breaking cycles of poverty and bringing economic independence and hope to marginalised communities, vulnerable people groups and lives affected by tragedy around the world.
