In 2004 , I first learned of Touch Nature while visiting the country of Nepal as part of a medical team. I observed women making candles and soap. At their plant nursery, I saw the plants which are grown and harvested for essential oils. I met Jo and was able to see her enthusiasm and joy for this ministry, and the women she works with. Their workplace provided childcare , and was a safe haven for these families.
“Touch Nature Global is a freedom business that provides employment to trafficked women by giving them a way out through the handmade soaps. The founder of this company, Josephine saw the plight of mothers in Nepal and felt called to help them.”( quote from website)
So what part can you play in supporting these women?

Josephine said, ” Touch Nature to me, is a safe haven. It has provided light that has brought many out of the darkness of slavery, trafficking and poverty. Alongside with my team here at Touch Nature, we hope to empower more women to step out of darkness. I believe that through Touch Nature many will be reached, rescued and restored.“( website)

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Let me know which of the 3 actions you chose to support Touch Nature. I have a special gift for the first person to comment on this blog and let me know . Susan
My heart has been touched as I have traveled in the past as a medical professional, but what has left a lasting impression on me has been the number of childrens that are orphaned. Did you know that 12% of children in Uganda are orphans, over 2 million by Unicef estimates? I was shocked to learn this. What can you do?
I have formed a relationship with an orphanage in Uganda, Hope for Africa Missions Orphans Ministry. They provide loving care to over 120 children. My goal is to offer an opportunity for people to purchase a Heart of Africa necklace with proceeds from every necklace sale going directly to the orphans.
