I also wanted to share the remaining questions from my interview with Hands Producing Hope founder, Rebecca Gardner. You can read the first couple of answers on Monday’s post.
What are the long term goals for the organization?
Long term we would like to be working in multiple countries around the world with women in remote communities who lack the opportunities needed to provide for themselves and their families. One next step is growing our Costa Rica program by hiring a local woman to help manage our work there. One goal that we are very excited about seeing come into fruition is launching a program in Rwanda, something that is currently in the works! Be sure to sign up for our email list to be the first to know when we launch! Other goals include wanting to see women leave our program because they have the training, skills and education needed to pursue other work that they have dreamed of doing. We also hope to continue to increase the number of scholarships and life skill classes that we have available for our artisans!
Besides making a purchase, how can we get involved?
While purchasing products is key to HPH being able to grow our impact, there are many other ways people can get involved!
