WHY THE LOTUS: ABOUT OUR LOGO
Senhoa (pronounced “suh-no-a”) is a combination of two Vietnamese words – “Sen” (lotus) and “Hoa” (flower). A lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with breathtaking beauty, untouched by its impure surroundings. Using this imagery, “Senhoa” was conceptualized in 2007 to represent women and children, vulnerable to sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking. The Senhoa lotus flower is an enduring symbol of innocence, resilience and hope.
The word “Senhoa” and the Senhoa lotus logo is a registered trademark, pertaining to Senhoa Foundation. Accessorize your conscience® – purchase your sterling silver Charmed by Senhoa pendant here!
