Trades of Hope
So many women live in poverty, not because they lack abilities, but because they lack opportunity. We started Trades of Hope to give women that opportunity for a better life. Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope's help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of HOPE!
We work with the artisans themselves and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. Some women have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have AIDS. These women have never had the chances we've had, yet they are just like us in so many ways. They love their families and hope and dream of a better life for them.
We are helping by marketing their products through the home party model, so they can put food on their table, a roof over their head, get medical care and an education for their children. We want to tell their stories to the world! We have a heart for ministry and business, and through this we have started separate successful non-profit organizations and businesses.
Trades of Hope helps individuals in poverty all over the world start and maintain small businesses. We do this by selling our artisan's products through home parties, online parties and catalog parties. We focus primarily on women because when you help one woman out of poverty, she brings four others with her! .
Everyone wants to make a difference in the world, but often we don't know how. Trades of Hope makes it easy! Your purchase allows many people to be blessed! Trades of Hope is not lining the pockets of big corporations or sweat shops. We’re providing a fair wage for people who need it the most. Our mission is to give women the opportunity to rise out of poverty through sustainable business. We believe in empowering women to have a voice and become world changers wherever they may live.
