Recently, Trades of Hope, through our Gifts of Hope program donated to a ministry that is giving ducks to families in the Philippines. We have loved getting to talk to our artisan group in Manila, and through working with them to produce the new Trades of Hope earrings, feel we have a strong connection there. When we found out about this opportunity to give ducks to hungry families, it seemed like a great match!
The families will benefit from hundreds of large, protein-rich eggs all year long. Extra duck eggs and hatched ducklings can be sold to buy medicine or help send a child to school.
Ducks have made a big difference for Elna Lajo's children in the Philippines. "It's a blessing from God that we were chosen [to receive the ducks]," says the mother of seven children. Easy and inexpensive to care for, her ducks have become a "livelihood that will send the kids to school."
Trades of Hope considers it a privilege and a blessing to be able to give back through the sales of our products and home parties! Thank you for changing the world with us!
