Meet Zara September 17 2014
Meet Zara… radiant, humble, gracious. Her sparkling eyes help tell the story of how the training and employment she and her husband received from Village Artisan in India have enriched their lives. Her thankful spirit shows no sign of the bitterness that you might expect from someone with such heartache. Zara was married at 16, and would say that she began to view her husband as a companion only through hardship. After the death of her in-laws, they sold the little they had and struggled to find dignified work for many years. Their lives were forever changed when she and her husband were employed by Village Artisan. Now their three children can go to school, there is enough food to go around and the quarreling with her extended family has ceased now that they can pay their share of the bills. As a result of the training and employment in producing handicrafts they have received from Village Exports, Zara and her family have a bright future.
She wears a smile because someone fought for her. Fight for someone today by joining us in the movement of opportunity.

We recently caught up with Ben Goolsby, who interned at Work of Worth in the Spring of 2014, helped win 4th place in a business plan competition, has now graduated and currently works at Enterprise, and is part owner of WoW. Join us as he gives insight and inspiration about internships and his experience with WoW earlier this year.
Q: What interested you about Work of Worth?
A: Work of Worth interested me at first because it seemed like such a phenomenal way to help people. We constantly struggle to find sustainable ways to help and WoW is exactly that. Our calling as believers is to go out and help the orphans and widows. WoW helps people GIVE THEMSELVES the tools to survive and provide for their families. My passion in life is to serve people. Work of Worth's very foundation is serving people.
