Hey Change Maker! My guest this week is Emilee Connell de Umanzor, founder of SoloHope. This is a super fun conversation where we discuss the importance of empowering women, why relationships are key, and the basic steps we often forget when working with marginalized communities.
Emilee is the follower of Jesus, wife of Ever, mommy of 3, founder of SoloHope, and lover of 3-hour coffee dates. After listening to the many challenges women in rural Honduras face, Emilee saw the need for jobs. In 2012, she had a random idea to make bracelets out of pine needles and thread. Alongside artisans Dilcia and Maribel, they began the roller coaster journey of SoloHope that has grown to include 10 artisans as well as women's co-op partnerships. Emilee and her family call Honduras home but are currently Stateside for an extended season and are taking the opportunity to eat as much Chickfila as possible.
SoloHope is a non-profit organization building relationships, strengthening communities, and renewing hope through job creation and community development. SoloHope partners with artisans in Honduras to create beautiful designs for home + body starting conversations that matter.
