"You can give others a fish and feed them once or
you can teach them how to fish and feed them for a lifetime."
1. Your contribution makes it possible to train marginalized women and men in
developing countries that have been rescued from a life of addiction, human
trafficking, and other life controlling problems and to provide them with professional
2. We purchase all of the supplies necessary (at wholesale costs in the United States)
to provide the training and bring them with us to each country.
3. We then visit an organization that is successfully rescuing others in a faith based
residential facility and train 6-15 students and at least one staff member how to
make handcrafted jewelry.
4. Over 40 hours of training is provided. Beautiful certificates of completion are given
to each trainee which gives further confidence, builds self-esteem, and provides a
sense of accomplishment.
5. We immediately purchase between $500 and $1,500 in product that our trainees use
to reinvested into the microenterprise. 6. Sales of products made by the students
help support the residential program which provides food, shelter, spiritual growth,
and a loving environment. A portion of the profit is reinvested in the business.
7. The staff member(s) and older students continue to train new students which lasts
8. We encourage the organization to hire students who graduate their program
or provide small microloans (in materials). The graduate is either paid
according to piece work and/or offered incentives for product sales.
9. Earnings of the students who have graduated the residential program help ensure
that they stay off of the streets, and have nutritious food to eat, health care,
education, and housing for them and their family.
10. Jewels 4 God is actively recruiting new sales volunteers and sales representatives
to sell jewelry made by those we have trained overseas and to help ministries
become self-supporting by providing sales opportunities in the United States in
addition to their local markets.
The jewelry training provides much more than economic benefits...click here to learn more.
