We get such joy from offering product lines that in some way give back to those in need! It is especially heartwarming when the company empowers people through education and employment and not only by monetary donations. HandUp Global Goods is such a company!
HandUp Global Goods seeks to eliminate a life of handouts for teens transitioning out of orphanages by working to seek social and spiritual change together.
They lovingly empower young men living in impoverished communities to transform their lives and the lives of those around them through vocational training, spiritual development, financial literacy, and employment. Because of the combination of these tools, the young men are able to transition out of orphanages, equipping them to become responsible workers, family members, and community leaders.
The company is based on Psalm 90:17 - LET THE FAVOR OF THE LORD OUR GOD BE UPON US, AND ESTABLISH THE WORK OF OUR HANDS; YES, ESTABLISH THE WORK OF OUR HANDS!
The result of teaching these men a trade craft that sustain them for years offers them a “HandUp”: to break them free from a life of handouts.
Come visit the shop to see the gorgeous, hand-crafted pieces we have from HandUp Global Goods and the young men of Haiti!
