More Than Sparrows Featured in the 2019-20 Hope Catalog!

More Than Sparrows – precious women who are indeed worth more than sparrows… who shine as stars in the night, leading others towards hope and dignity.

Who is More Than Sparrows?

More Than Sparrows is comprised of 30 women ranging in age from their 20’s to 50’s. Each artisan is self-employed through this fair trade enterprise, and the collective provides advisers who assist each artisan in managing her own affairs.

By supporting More Than Sparrows, you bring hope and joy to each of these 30 women who had previously been accustomed to lives where each day was a struggle for survival. The artisans come from broken lives where they were once stripped of their dignity. Now they experience lives of promise because they know that their craftsmanship is valued by others.

The More Than Sparrows artisans draw their inspiration from Matthew 10:31, which says, “Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.” These words help them understand their priceless personal value in addition to taking immense pride in their work. They can support, love, and listen to each other as they stand up and say, “We are more than sparrows.”

These artisans are so much more than sparrows. You can help them continue to know their worth by purchasing their products and by joining us to pray for their continued hope and joy.
