What We're Doing
Trades of Hope is changing these statistics by partnering with the talented artisans groups of Guatemala to share their products with the United States. Because of this, the women of Guatemala are providing for their families, given the opportunity to attend school and learn basic principles that will help them move ahead in life. Young girls are receiving structured learning programs full of practical skills that enables them to become self-reliant and financially independent. These incredible artisans are treated with respect and are taught that they and their dreams have so much value. By purchasing their products you are directly helping create and sustain jobs, changing generations to come in Guatemala!
