“What does social justice mean to you?” This was the question I was asked. My immediate emotional response was long, intense, and passionate. My reasonable response was not.

Many of the amazing women who make our clothes were once victims of human trafficking in parts of India. We are thankful for organizations like Freeset, one of our partners, who has taken up the fight against human trafficking in such a big way by offering employment opportunities in a loving and safe environment.  But don’t think that you need to have major resources or influence to have an impact in the world.

One of the things we really love here at The Joyful Project is listening to people tell real stories about their lives. Every now and then we have the opportunity to support some of these people and when those opportunities come our way we are happy to contribute to the story. During the summer of 2016 we met a young woman who shared her story with us. Her name is Jenna and she has made the decision to attend YWAM in Kona, Hawaii....
