Our story our artisans' stories, which chronicle the courage and determination required to invest in oneself. In rural Honduras, young people are often pulled out of school before 6th grade in order to support their farming-focused family. Although it feels impossible to imagine, it tells of a worldwide reality. Our artisans begin as students in a 3-year paid vocational program by our sister organization, Mission Lazarus. Students go to school for free, including their books, a daily lunch, and a daily stipend.
