Our empowered artisans create handmade & fair trade accessories, home & Christmas decor, coffee and children toys! These items are empowering women in the U.S. and in 19 countries to rise up out of difficult situations and into a lives of renewed Hope and freedom.
The work I do with Trades of Hope is providing prevention as well as restoration to those vulnerable to trafficking and those stepping out of trafficking. I've had personal encounter with sex trafficking and knew friends who have been in it and pushed to rise out of it! This work first addresses the most valuable in extreme poverty with a sustainable job opportunities. This helps prevent parents from having to exploit themselves for an income. Then, we aid on the restoration side with positive employment history for those survivors who have left trafficking. Both here in the U.S. and 19 other countries, we are giving others hope and freedom to find their dreams once again.
