This past year a group of AED-Lidaw members started a social enterprise. The women weave small red beads together to make intricate ribbons, which are worn to demonstrate solidarity with people living with HIV/AIDS.
The women, who have organized themselves into a savings and loan collective, sell these ribbons to Hope Through Health to earn a valuable source of income for themselves and their families. HTH distributes the ribbons at events throughout the country as a thank you for donations of $5 or more. 100% of the donations received are invested in providing care for people living with HIV/AIDS in Togo. Each ribbon is attached to a small card with the name, photo, and brief history of the individual who wove it.
If you are interested in receiving or helping to distribute red ribbons for HTH please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
