The Village of Hope in Uganda
The Franklin Shops will present artisan jewelry, accessories and home decor from Uganda's The Village of Hope during Art Walk in August. The Village of Hope is a safe home for women and children, which is represented by a local Non-Profit Organization. Our featured artists are a group of young women who escaped with their children, and now must work to support themselves and their families. These talented women are part of the Tabitha Artisans Project, which enables them to earn a living and share their story of hope. All of the funds raised in Fort Myers directly support the families in Uganda.
