ARTISAN DETAILS 

EsperanzArt was founded by Miguel, an Ecuadorian who survived a childhood of poverty and neglect. He lived on the streets as a teenager, until a local ministry intervened and gave him a second chance. From there, Miguel developed a desire to help people in similar situations. Miguel and his wife Desi, started EsperanzArt as a vocational workshop for girls coming out of the sex trade. 

“Esperanza” is the Spanish word for hope. The vision of Esperanzart is to offer hope through art.

Emotional Hope: Helping young women gain confidence by healing through art and building positive relationships.

Economic Hope: Gaining work experience while completing their high school education which improves their capacity to find a permanent career and support their children (most are single young moms).

Spiritual Hope: Reclaiming their true worth through weekly devotionals and learning Christian principles in the workplace.
