Meet our artisan Andrea!
Santiago native, Andrea, had ten years of experience working as a bead artisan before coming to Women of Hope, but says she’s glad that she came. Here, she’s earning and learning more.
“This place stands out from all others” Andrea explains. Not only is the pay better, but she also found encouragement for her spiritual growth. “I know that God is everything and He’s in everything, but I’ve never seen Him be a focus in other jobs.”
Andrea began with the ministry in 2021 part time, though now works full time. She mainly makes the beaded Christmas balls. She has plans to continue working with Women of Hope as she wants to learn to do more styles and gain other skills. She eventually wants to have her own small business where she will make and sell her own designs locally.
