Santa Rosa Stitches
Santa Rosa Stitches is a non-profit organization that supports a group of artisan women in Chiltiupan, El Salvador, a small remote village in the municipality of La Libertad. Most of these women have no other way to earn a living, as there is virtually no economy in Chiltiupan - one of the poorest villages in El Salvador with a 98% unemployment rate.
With the proceeds from Santa Rosa Stitches these women have been able to send their children to school, make improvements to their homes and help feed their families. They also have a new confidence and a stronger voice in their village.
