Threads of Hope started in 2012 as a sewing project among exploited women in Athens. In 2014, it transitioned into the non-profit business it is today.
Threads of Hope aims to provide life-changing opportunities through education and employment. Women are invited to join a training program, which runs for three to six months, during which time they learn not only sewing, but also other skills.
At the conclusion of the training program, the trainees are able to apply for employment through the Threads of Hope business, where they can utilize their newly learned skills.
Threads of Hope is run by a team of volunteers coming from very diverse professional and ethnic backgrounds. Diverse, but strongly united in the shared goal of seeing women being freed from exploitation and given the opportunity and support to rebuild their lives.
