My friend Megan from The Boho Mama is here today sharing an awesome company that she is working with that does great work AND is giving away a beautiful Aqua Scarf today to one lucky reader. Read on and see how you can help Trades of Hope to help women around the world.
Trades of Hope is a Fair-Trade, women-owned business that works with artisans and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. Some women have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have AIDS. These women have never had the chances we’ve had, yet they are just like us in so many ways. They love their families and hope and dream of a better life for them. We help by marketing their products so they can put food on their table, a roof over their head, get medical care and an education for their children.
The Nepali Aqua Scarf
is made in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world with an unemployment rate of 42%. Many women are lured into the sex trade to survive, they are sold, stolen or forced into brothels. The women making these scarves are given a way to support themselves and their families, earning a fair wage, and living with hope and dignity.
I joined Trades of Hope because the mission resonated deeply with me – I have a passion for maternal and infant health, and coupled with my small business making and giving ring slings to mothers in need, through Trades of Hope I can also help more women on a larger scale. It’s something fun, doesn’t come with a lot of pressure, and the products are gorgeous and make beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
