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 helps end that cycle. With every $2 bracelet sold, Threads of Hope gets $1 back to support the families working for a better life in the Philippines. The remaining $1 goes to supporting the women we serve in the communities of Lorain and Erie counties.
