Zi Yun, Artisan in East Asia

"With no education or options, a friend brought me to a brothel to work. I eventually ran my own. I recruited girls into the brothels myself. Today, I go into the same neighborhoods filled with brothels that I used to work in so that I can bring women and girls out of the dark life of exploitation and help them experience true freedom."

Clivia, Artisan in Haiti

"I was raised in one of the most dangerous areas in Port-au-Prince. I cannot imagine what life would be like without my work. I would have to depend on the help of others. I love when I hear there are new orders and that I'm able to come to work the next day! Trades of Hope and this Artisan community have helped by providing jobs."

Mosmeen, Artisan in India

"I was married off at a very young age to a man from another village. Years later, my husband deserted me. Now, I have dignity and economic security. All three of my children can go to school, and I’m also able to support other female Artisans in my village."

When we come together,  anything is possible
