Dene Divas started out with charitable contributions and indigenous community growth as a core value of their business model. Their main purpose is to raise awareness and funds for residential school charities since their family was personally affected by residential school and Sixty's Scoop impacts.
A huge pillar of their charity work comes from their donation collections for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR). From the sale of their Remember Our Children line - orange dream catchers, orange keychains, and orange lanyards - Dene Divas donates 10% of collected revenue to the NCTR. The funds they've raised over their first year of business will help the NCTR continue to build their repository of residential school statements, knowledge, and reconciliation tactics.
As their business progresses and more reconciliation work is done over the years, Dene Divas will continue to donate to the NCTR.
The National Centre for Truth & Reconciliation is a non-profit organization that fosters the learning, dialogue and truths about residential schools from survivors, their families, and their communities.
The NCTR is essentially the safe space for all statements, documents, and other materials gathered in investigations so that residential school experiences are properly documented and archived for ongoing legal proceedings, research, and learning. Their work is essential for helping survivors access resources to pave the way for true reconciliation.
