Artisans from Dominican Republic
The Lily House
The Lily House offers healing to women who have been sexually trafficked and those who are at risk of being trafficked. With high levels of poverty, illiteracy, and physical abuse, Dominican women are exceptionally vulnerable to traffickers.
The Lily House teaches the women teamwork, opportunity, faithfulness to quality, and commitment. Through their fair-trade enterprise, women are encouraged that there is hope. They have new light in their eyes because they now know they have value and talent and are worthy of love. As The Lily House artisans earn a living wage, they are able to purchase medicines, obtain a higher level of education, and provide for their children. These women are now able to think bigger and dream again.
