New "Portraits of El Salvador" Initiative

Arte Comasagua artisans

We are thrilled to announce that Hope For Women is building upon our success in India by beginning a new partnership with women artisans in El Salvador.

For the past several months we have been building a relationship with Arte Comasagua, an artisan group located in the highland cloud forests of El Salvador.

Our new line “Portraits of El Salvador” – this is “Rosa”

In 2001, massive mud slides and a devastating earthquake left many families in the highlands of El Salvador homeless and jobless. With their fields destroyed, many people began traveling long hours to low-paying jobs in the capital. To better their lives, a group of enterprising women formed Arte Comasagua, an artisans’ organization that handcrafts stylish designs from native flowers and plants. These women now work locally, caring for their families and saving for their future.

Hope For Women is proud to work with this incredible group of women, and we are excited to launch our new line of greeting cards, “Portraits of El Salvador”.

“Portraits of El Salvador” greeting cards have arrived, and are available at stores and on our website.
