The Good: Every Product Tells a Story. Every Purchase Brings Hope.
Connected in Hope Foundation is a non-profit social enterprise that addresses the needs of women and families in Ethiopia.We work with women who once carried 75-80 pound bundles of fuel wood 10+ miles down the surrounding mountains to sell in the markets in Addis Ababa for less than $1/day. Our mission goes beyond charity to the creation of a business model that honors and builds on the talent, commitment and creativity of our amazing weavers. Our goal is to provide access to international markets as well as the support, encouragement and training necessary for weavers to earn a sustainable, predictable and Fair Trade income. The weavers are paid upfront for their products and 100% of the profits from sales are reinvested in programs that benefit the women and their families.
There is a story woven into every one of our scarves. A story of hope. The story of a woman whose life has been changed because of your decision to buy one of her scarves!
