More About Designed For Joy
Designed For Joy is a transitional work experience for women coming from trafficking, homelessness, time in prison, overcoming addiction, or other vulnerable situations. They provide living wage work hours while building confidence and refreshing resumes. They are launching equipped women into the marketplace.
The heart and soul of DFJ comes from inspiration from international friends creating fair trade artisan groups. They have spent years financially and prayerfully supporting international artisans groups. Their first trip to Rwanda introduced them to an artisan group taking 30 women off the streets working in the sex industry and kept them off the streets while producing quality products in a safe and faith-based work environment.
Together with volunteers and financial supporters like you, they have created that same work model here in North Carolina by opening their studio in December of 2017. Learn more at DesignedForJoy.com.
