Handbags, single strap, double strap, sets with clutches, if you’re like millions of other Americans you have a love for these items that may border on a guilty pleasure. But what if buying a bag was more than buying a bag?
The villages in Honduras are filled with women and families struggling to survive. These women rarely have any skills or employment prospects and even if they do the only jobs are in the city, nearly an hour away. With no cars, this requires them to spend a big part of their day on public transportation to a long workday and back. All the while, their small children have no one to care for them during the day.
Our Honduras products are sourced from a production center that is able to provide local employment so these women are able to work in the community, available to their children and yet able to perform meaningful labor that can break the cycle of economic and spiritual poverty that is often repeated in our communities.
