Handspun Hope

Handspun Hope

Handspun Hope believes strongly in serving as a good steward of the earth. To that end, we are committed to the practice of environmental and social sustainability - to minimize our impact on the environment. We accomplish this through:

  • the installation and use of a rain water collection system on the Handspun Hope campus in Musanze

  • the exclusive use of 100% organic and primarily plant-based dyes

  • the rotational grazing of our flock of Merino sheep in order to increase forage production and reduce soil compaction and erosion

  • the use of farm-produced manure for composting purposes

  • the support of local farmers through the purchase of supplemental grass when needed

 

Empowerment 

Handspun Hopes believes empowerment, chiefly through vulnerable women, is a central principle for reducing poverty and improving the health and well being of children and communities. 

Sustainability

Handspun Hope believes that equipping, educating and employing are key facets in helping impoverished individuals find sustainable solutions to poverty.

Creativity

Handspun Hope believes that identifying and fostering creativity is crucial for continued economic growth and social change in Africa. 

Collaboration

Handspun Hope believes that successful social enterprises require collaboration. This includes engaging a variety of people in public and private sectors, entrepreneurs and laborers and people of all ages and genders.
