The women's sewing collective, Stitching Hope, takes on a variety of projects, including making quinceañera dresses.
Two events coming up in the next month, both virtual: and JustHope Live on microcredit, September 24, and Wine for Water, October 8.
Founder Leslie Penrose shares some of her favorite memories from JustHope's first 13 years. The Sonañdo Juntos Ferretería y Tienda (Dreaming Together Hardware and General Store) leaves a community changed by its impact. Join the next JustHope Live conversation on August 13.
The Pottery Lottery is back. Plus, the latest from our social media feed.
What good could a few hundred dollars do? If you were to ask this question of a small business owner in the United States, the answer would probably be a swift “Not much!” We spotlight the Microcredit Program in this month's newsletter.
We partnered with a filmmaker in Nicaragua to highlight what JustHope is doing and who we are impacting. We are making a difference in the lives of people like Yamilet, a farmer and microcredit participant, who remarked: "Three years ago I never hoped to succeed like I do now. Today I feel secure because I have a way to earn."
We will be screening the video at Wine for Water on Oct 1. Check it out on YouTube.
