Partnering with Mentors International

We are excited to announce that Pearls With Purpose is now a program under the direction of Mentors International. Our missions co-align and this partnership is a perfect fit. Since 1990 Mentors International has been empowering the world’s poor to grow in self-reliance through mentoring, personal and business mentoring and access to financial services.

We are now going to be able to offer improved business and personal development training courses to our artisans through Mentors International. Our jewelry makers will also have the benefit of working with in-country mentors that will provide them with on-going guidance and support. Mentors International also provides the opportunity for our artisans to apply for micro-loans to help them further grow and develop their businesses.

We are thrilled for all of the new opportunities and growth this partnership will mean for our artisans.

We recently returned from a partnership trip to the Dominican Republic where we were able to teach and mentor a group of young women who have been rescued from human trafficking. Read about this new project.
