Where this product came from
Pearls of Hope
Deep beneath the waters of the sea lies an inspiring story of hope in the face of crisis. As tiny invaders lodge themselves within oyster shells, they are covered over with layers of beauty, forming unique and precious pearls. In the heart of Thailand, a similar transformation takes place as women gather to create exquisite jewelry from these pearls. Working in safety and dignity, they find their own stories of crisis giving way as their true beauty and value emerges. Pearls of Hope is a preventative program that “rescues” and empowers vulnerable women so they don’t become victims of human trafficking. Creating jewelry in their own homes or small shops, these women often employ other at-risk women, widening the circles of protection within their communities. Like the extraordinary gems formed as a response to hardship, the Pearls of Hope women are overcoming difficult circumstances to make something beautiful of their lives. Your purchase reaches across the ocean to help empower them to live in safety and work with dignity.
Mai was alone, abandoned by her husband to care for their two children. With little money and no protection, Mai and her children were at risk of being targeted by those who prey on the desperate and vulnerable, luring them into the notorious trafficking markets of Thailand. Determined to resist them and find a way to support herself, Mai ventured to open a small pearl shop. Eager to see Mai, her family, and her business flourish, WAR, Int’l began a partnership with her. She interacts with WAR, Int’l staff and jewelry experts regularly, gaining mentorship and resources to grow her business and provide for her family. Now her shop not only provides her with a reliable income but also creates jobs for many other vulnerable women. As Mai’s business continues to grow, so does the circle of protection and hope embracing at-risk women in her community. When you wear these beautiful pearls, you are wearing the story of women protected, empowered, and living with dignity.
Stories capture what goes unseen. They open closed doors, reveal hidden evils, and celebrate recovery. Stories reach across the globe, finding their way into our hands and hearts. Voices once silenced by abuse, addiction, and abandonment become loud cries for justice through the power of the written word. Heart-wrenching accounts of slavery and exploitation awaken communities to dark realities and call them to action. All this begins with you. When you make a purchase in support of rescued and at-risk individuals, you do not just gain a book or a bracelet—you help to rewrite the stories of rescued and at-risk women, transforming knowledge into rescue and words into a way of life.
