HOPEVEN-FORWOMEN'S MISSION IS TO HELP HOMELESS WOMEN REGAIN CONFIDENCE AND INDEPENDENCE
Our non-profit operation understands the importance of good feelings. Our products, handmade by women in homeless shelters who have willingly joined our program, enhance these women's pride as it allows them to create income for themselves.
Since 2018, Hopeven has been working with women shelters in Thailand to enroll homeless women in a crafting skill training program developed to teach them how to produce handmade goods. Once they have been trained, these women were able to produce these goods and create an income for themselves by selling it through Hopeven. These hand-made crafts can be found below.
Hope-ForWomen is currently working with two large women shelters in Thailand with 700 combined residents. Our training sessions are held with a maximum of 50 residents each section. Once a resident learns how to produce a certain good, they can join the assembly line for producing goods that are to be sold online or in booths.
Profits made from the products sold are given back to the woman who produced the product and the homeless women's shelter.
Gaining independent income helps in:
HYANICITH/ PAPYRUS LEAVES
The leaves of the Hyanicith and Papyrus weeds are used in producing our weaved products. Both of these are rapidly-growing aquatic weeds that are useless and can often times blocks drainage systems. Production using these weeds can allow us to create value and lessen unnecessary waste.
Fabric used to make rugs are reused from old clothes and fabric donated to the Women's Shelter.
