By purchasing a Trades of Hope product, you are giving a silenced woman a voice and an opportunity to escape the grip of poverty. We are helping women escape the sex trade, slums, sweatshops and extreme poverty by selling their fair trade products. This allows them to put a roof over their head, food on the table and send their children to school to end the cycle of poverty. Thank you for your life changing purchase!
