Fair Trade Journals Are Breaking the Bonds of Poverty

Thousands of people in Haiti live in poverty making it near impossible for families to earn enough money to break through the system. These people are suffering and many children end up on the streets to fend for themselves. But Woven Grace, a new partner of Jesus’ Economy, is working to change that through the Streethearts' Safe House.

The young men of the Streethearts' Safe House in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, were once living on the street, using drugs, prostitution, stealing, and any other means possible to get food and shelter. Streethearts offers them a safe place to live, receive education to meet their learning levels, and develop the life skills needed to rise above extreme poverty.

Woven Grace has introduced the journal-making program at Streethearts as a way for these teens to learn business skills and start a pattern toward a better future. Next time you need a new journal, consider buying one from Streethearts and join their fight to exit poverty.
