About this Artisan
For centuries, men and women in the Middle East have stitched their stories into a tapestry or carved them into olive wood. These age-old traditions are continuing to flourish with Glad Tidings in Jordan. From each sale of an item, the artisans, who are hearing-impaired, disabled, or disadvantaged, can afford to buy precious commodities such as food, clothing, shelter, and education. Despite their disabilities, the artisans joyfully finesse this traditional art, thankful that Glad Tidings did not turn them away as so many others had.
