But Vandana found hope! As a grown woman, she married a Trades of Hope wood working artisan. She began to learn the art of wood carving in the workshop and was given the opportunity to work for a fair wage. Gradually she began working and started earning income to help support her family in a better way than working in multiple homes.
Life has changed for her and she is happy working with Trades of Hope! She is now 41 years old and has 3 children and can afford to send the oldest to college and send the others to school. She enjoys cooking at home rather than going out, and always says she can cook better than the restaurants!
We love getting to empower women like Vandana by selling her beautiful pieces. Be sure to take a closer look at the white washed wooden box she proudly worked on for the springtime gift set.
