Our dream was to create a place where women could learn valuable life-skills and eventually support their families out of the cycle of poverty. This dream is coming into reality every day as women learn to read and write, learn to sew, learn to make jewelry, learn to cook, and learn to run their own businesses. It is our ultimate desire to see women discover their God-given talents and abilities and to know they are treasured themselves!
We offer four different education classes: literacy, beading, sewing, and new this semester, cooking. Women who graduate from the ten-month sewing class or the three-month beading class have the opportunity to work part-time for Heartline at the center. We provide materials, a machine, and a safe place to work. Their beautiful hand-crafted goods are available online at HaitianCreations.com and through hosted Purse Parties around the US and Canada! If you're interested in hosting a party to introduce your family and friends to the pieces these talented women are creating, email Angela at Angela.Backstrom@heartlineministries.org!
The best way you can support this area of ministry is to buy their handcrafted items! Host a purse party and get the word out about this great way you can give hope to these women and their families.
When you purchase a purse or jewelry, you are helping to provide hope for the woman on that tag. You are strengthening the Haitian economy and you are giving joy and smiles to kids who get regular meals and have the chance to go to school. Thank you for your heart for these treasured women.
