Meet our local leaders

The Reeds of Hope-One Thread project was birthed out of relationship.  Reeds of Hope believes that all our work should operate out of and through relationship.  We know that relationship is what brings community and that brings depth of connection.  We are so proud to be alongside people already doing amazing things and inviting others on the journey.  We wanted to take the time to introduce you to one of our friends......

 Meet One Thread Project's Social Worker, Isamel. She is pictured here on the left alongside one of the recent graduates, Sarah. She lives and cares for her mother and brother. She studied in Switzerland and worked in adoption while she was there. Isamel goes to the sewing center three times a week. Checks in with the women there, see if there are women waiting, and make certain that needs are met. If there are women waiting for sponsorship, she brings those names to Amy and they discuss how to move forward. Any time a new student is added she is in charge of meeting with them, checking on their attendance, and making sure that they are doing well in the program. She keeps in constant communication with One Thread stateside. She makes sure that all the school fees are paid for the children in our program and transportation needs are in place each month. Isamel helps to organize tasks and improve work. If a woman or their children fall ill, she follows up with them at home or the hospital. We are so very grateful for Isamel and know that logistically none of this work could be done without her! She is such a gift!
