SPRING COLLECTION INTRODUCTION
This gleaming collaboration is inspired by the Kenyan teen moms we serve, who affectionately refer to glitter as “shine, shine.” In order to shine, one must reflect light. While the darkness of the world grows, so does the opportunity for us to shine. As we burn brighter and illuminate the darkness, we are connected by each bright and light piece of our Shine Shine Collection created by hand by global artisans. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
Judy is a part of Street Hope, and the day Kristen met her she was high and she had given her children away. Five years later she was completely transformed!
Street Hope is comprised of sixteen women in Mathare Slum in Nairobi, Kenya, who have lived most of their lives on the streets. Many were orphaned as children and have only known a life of poverty, while others became homeless due to difficult circumstances, forcing them to do whatever necessary to survive. Mercy House Global began training and employing these women in 2016, and one by one they have moved into homes, gaining skills, confidence, and overcoming addiction.
