Threads of Hope is one of our amazing Bought Beautifully vendors! Although they are new to Bought Beautifully, the organization has a proven track record of sharing God's love in tangible ways. Threads of Hope began in 1999 as a partnership between 7 Peruvian artists and 2 women from the states with the goal to empower God's people by breaking the cycle of poverty. They do this by providing fair, consistent, and reliable monthly income for the creators of their products. They sell these items in the states, and thanks to their expansive volunteer coalition, they are able to pour 100% of the profit back into the communities through grants aimed at reducing poverty.
Below is the Moya family, three generations of women who have been positively impacted by Threads of Hope. Here is their story:
Solfina Moya started with ToH in 1999. She was DETERMINED to make a better life for her children. She fled an alcoholic abusive marriage, and came to Lima for "opportunity"…there was none. She and her children found themselves in a scrap shanty house, with pallets for walls, a tin and tarp patched roof, no running water or fuel source. She learned to sew with Threads of Hope, and now, 15 years later, has built a proper home, with a tile bathroom, functional kitchen, a real roof and enough space for her adult children and grandchildren (In Peru families live multi-generationally).
Several years ago ToH asked Solfina if she was going to install concrete floors in her ever improving home. Her answer: "No, I am sending by son to law school." Gustavo graduated law school in 2009, passed the bar and is a practicing attorney, all thanks to his mother's heart, hands, and dedication to the future for her family.
