Our Approach

 

Crafting Love and Hope utilizes a holistic approach to raise families out of poverty and create new opportunities for success and healing by engaging both children and mothers.  Our approach to poverty alleviation involves empowering youth with valuable English and technology skills and training women to become skilled artisans and access new markets for their products. In this way, we empower families to break their cycles of poverty through sustainable livelihoods. As a social enterprise, we strive to fund our services in a financially sustainable manner through the sale of our mindfulness products that are made by refugees in the Washington, DC area.
