Thank You

Thank you! from our heart to yours.

We founded this nonprofit because we felt (still feel) that the artisan women go through so much to support their families. They beat the odds with cultural, religious, poverty and economic challenges that “keep them in their place” yet everyday, they work, they bead, they try. They make gorgeous accessories, shoes, blankets and we are passionate to help them see the value in their craft.
