Women are resilient, with a strength unlike anything I have ever seen.
Today is International Women's Day! We celebrate women and their achievements around the world. What a stunning kaleidoscope of beauty, diversity, and culture women create. Even in light of our differences, we stand hand-in-hand, intertwined by sisterhood, respect, and the knowledge that we are better together.
Trades of Hope is finding women who are facing the impossible and empowering them out of poverty.
We partner with 13,000 women and sell their handmade products, so they can become the heroes of their own stories.
International Women’s Day is also a time to focus on places and situations where women's rights still have a long way to go. Millions of women around the world face the physical, emotional, and psychological effects of slavery, sexual exploitation, slums, and discrimination.
What is the most impactful way to support women on International Women’s Day?

I have met women in places as close as the U.S. and Haiti, all the way to Guatemala and Jordan. They are all women who have overcome. They have faced poverty, sex trafficking, their hungry children, and lack of opportunity.
In Haiti, women face the decision to either keep their children with no way to feed them or give them to orphanages, so they can live with parents who can provide.
In Jordan, they are seen as burdens and problems.
Women in Cambodia are suffering from acid attacks.
Women in Pakistan are in bond slavery.
Women in North Asia are treated as property in brothels.
But these women will not remain oppressed. They will rise. Wouldn’t you love to partner with them?
Join us as we empower women out of poverty around the world!
