House of Light Goods is a non-profit small business that provides empowered employment to single mothers in Primo Tapia, Mexico and helps bring positive change to vulnerable families and children at risk.
Where we’re needed
There is a poverty-driven orphan crisis in Mexico. Sadly, due to unemployment, imprisonment, gang activity, and other factors, many of the fathers are absent. This leaves mothers particularly vulnerable as they try to provide basic needs for their children without family support, resources, education or help.
Many Moms are forced to leave their small children behind on the streets while they work or search for work. The kids are then forced to do their best to scrounge for food and survive each day. Other times they are locked alone in the house while the mother works very long and exhausting hours.
Tragically, these all too common options leave children vulnerable to predators and traffickers, physical and sexual abuse, exposure to drug use, neglect, hunger, illness, accidents and loneliness.
What we do
House of Light Goods works in partnership with Casa de Luz Children’s Centre in Primo Tapia, Mexico, which provides a safe place for these beautiful children to learn, play, be loved, thrive and be well cared for. Their Mothers are able to further their education, start their own businesses through a micro loan program, find suitable employment, and be part of a supportive and encouraging community as they begin a journey of healing.
House of Light Goods provides empowered employment to women. Each scarf and necklace is handcrafted by one of CDL’s single mothers, enabling her to provide food, shelter and clothing for her children. All profits go back to Casa de Luz to provide nutritious meals, educational support, family counselling and other resources to impoverished families. This has brought incredible positive change to families who now live lives of wholeness and have new hope for a bright future.
