Alice from Kenya
“I was unhappy and discouraged as I did not know where my meal would come from.”
Now Alice feels hopeful she can be safe, secure, and have the chance to live a full life. The wheelchairs disabled artisans receive provide mobility and independence.
“I feel free. I feel like a person!”
Unable to have children, crafting jewelry has enabled Alice to create a family of her own. As a Trades of Hope artisan, she earns enough income to provide food, shelter, clothing, and education for herself, her adopted daughter, and orphaned niece. She even saves money and dreams of owning her own business one day.
Ethical Fashion and Fair Trade Make an Impact
“Please continue to shop our pieces so more people who are disabled can stop begging on the street.” – Alice
