Trades of Hope helps women live the lives they were created to live.
For women abroad who are rising out of poverty, that means giving them the opportunity to provide food, education and health care for their families, inviting them into a community where they feel valued, and presenting a path to live up to their fullest potential.
For women in the US, it provides something similar: Community with like-minded friends, earning an income while making an impact, and an avenue to provide for her family with her family.
