In the Philippines, children in poverty are sometimes forced into desperate situations to help provide basic needs for their families. Poverty and lack of education can make prostitution appear to be their only option left. Parents are forced to travel long distances to find work, which leaves kids alone and especially vulnerable to exploitation, continuing the cycle of poverty.
Your purchase through Threads of Hope helps end that cycle. You provide dignified work for families so they can stick together, avoid exploitation, and pursue education to set a new trajectory for their lives. Your purchase supports over 200 families directly, while providing them with a thriving community through our projects in education, public health, community development, and spiritual growth.
Every product you purchase is handmade by someone whose life you’re helping to change. There is more great work to be done, and your purchase will help make it happen.
Helping one girl on the beaches of Puerto Galera has brought hope to a whole village of people. One act of compassion became a means of starting a church, building a school, and helping provide for the needs of over 300 families. We raise our own support to ensure that every dollar gets to the families we serve.
In 2011 we started helping with business systems. We moved to the Philippines in 2014 to operate the livelihood project here and continue to manage the accounting, operations and administration areas as Threads of Hope continues to grow. We raise our own support to ensure that every dollar gets to the families we serve.
