All our products are thoughtfully made by women in Honduras
overcoming poverty. After listening to the challenges women in rural
Honduras faced to overcome poverty, Emilee Connell-Umanzor saw the need
for jobs. The women she met were talented but had few job or market
opportunities. In 2012, Emilee met with artisans, Dilcia and Maribel,
and shared a crazy idea to create bracelets from pine needles and
thread. They had the skill and they said YES! Because of their yes, today SoloHope not only partners with artisans
in Honduras, but also has created a model for community development in other remote communities.
