Stories of Hope is a charity-based project bringing hope and joy to underprivileged men and women around the globe.
This is done through craft-based education which in turn provides a marketable skill.
Product design, weaving, natural dyeing, sewing and even handspinning of yarn are taught to small groups of men and women. In turn they will pass these skills on to others.
The stories of the men and women Linda LaBelle worked with in Mexico, India and Rwanda are archived through photos and interviews and are presented in this book.
Your purchase of this book helps to fund Stories of Hope.
