Meet our Artisans
All of our artisans have one thing in common: each have experienced their most vulnerable state, where they felt like the only alternative they had was to relinquish their children in hopes that they would have an opportunity for a better life. But for each of our artisans, they found hope with a jewelry program that has now become ila joi.
ila joi provides life skills, a sustainable income, and most importantly, hope founded on a strong Christian belief that God will provide. Please enjoy reading the incredible testimonies and prayers of our 31 artisans. You can support these women by purchasing their upcycled, hand-crafted jewelry in our shop.
