How Culture Hope's seed took root...
Most ideas worth pursing start a a small seed or a thought, a purpose with merit that fills a need which is not yet fulfilled. Culture Hope is just that sort of idea.
There are many noble and worthy groups reaching out and address the needs of the poor, also the labor and sex trafficked women and children in our world. The most successful of these organizations go beyond giving a meal or a temporary shelter, they are able to embrace the broken individual, restore hearts and hope, then equip them for a future with meaning. Some of these organizations are large with a strong support base. But, many are small structures with a few staff care-fully creating lasting results in hearts and lives.
These groups heed the call of God's heart to care for the oppressed, to see the need of the poor in the world, the ones society overlooks too often, the child being labor trafficked, the woman sold as a bride into another nation, the uneducated youth who needs someone to entrust him with a skill. Some of these groups work to rescue, restore, and endue individuals with critical, life changing job skills. This process restores hearts to hope and a productive new future. Many produce beautiful, hand-crafted items that honor their cultural roots and return dignity to the individual artisan.
These are the groups we support. These are the individuals Culture Hope celebrates. These are the beautifully and ethically handmade items that we are delighted to share with you. We know you will love partnering with them, too.
We search the world for individuals, work groups and non-profit organizations who are focused on making a lasting difference. They are transforming the individual. They are restoring justice. They are changing their culture.
Culture Hope was founded with this purpose in mind: Create a market place that features the artisanal works of individuals and groups who have overcome poverty, human trafficking, and homelessness. Our goal it the help them maintain sustainable jobs which can help transform their worth, dignity and their future to one filled with hope.
