Half the Sky

Soap updates

Remember our call for donations for a new soap plant and training centre for women?  ( Please read about it below ) We got a donation in kind 🙂  so our office design vision has changed to match the donation. We will be receiving huge aluminium glass windows and doors from an old building that is due for a total renovation. So, it just got even better.  What we need now would be the funding for the labor costs in getting the materials up and into the look that we want and can only dream of, now.  We have started building our soap commissary though, and will be making soaps out of my kitchen in the meantime 🙂

Help us empower undeserved women from our communities through skills development and financial independence. In Melinda Gates new book “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World”, it is clear that when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.

_ _ _ _ ____ ____ ________  call for donations in February 2019

Imagine, more than a month without blogging!  Please forgive us. Mea Culpa. Busy, not an excuse.

First off, we plunged head on with our Workshop Series. Since we’d like to really work towards our 20/20 vision, that is, to make Quezon Province the Organic Soap capital of the Philippines. 🙏🏻 Can you help us pray for this?  So we can provide more jobs for women in our community and in Quezon Province.

We’re also working on a crowdfunding project, so we can move to a new place where we can train more women & make more soaps! And to be able to make our store and soap making workshops one of the tourist attractions of Quezon Province.

We already have a bare lot that we’d want to build our “dreams” on.  But we’re thinking people like you, who believe in dreams, might want to be part of it too.

Valentine Week kick off

Soap updates

Love is patient, love is kind” (1 Corinthians 13:4–8a) is a favorite Bible verse about love. … Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

One New Year Story

Soap updates

2018 was such a challenging year for us. So unbelievably frustrating, that we are still reeling from the remnants of dark episodes and, believe us, actually still feeling the aftershocks.

But God is good. We put our trust in Him. And by His amazing grace, we will pull through. 🙏🏻

The true genius shudders at incompleteness — imperfection — and usually prefers silence to saying the something which is not everything that should be said.

Edgar Allan Poe, Marginalia

For you, who’s weathering a really bad storm. We are praying for YOU. Our survival rules: FOCUS on ONE problem, one day at a time, so you won’t get overwhelmed. DREAM hard, WORK harder, and PRAY hardest. We prayed so hard for God to change the circumstances that we cannot control, if not, make the circumstances work for us, for good and in our favor. And God is faithful, He truly answers our prayers almost instantly, unbelievably, and amazingly.

Tis the season to be jolly

We’re thrilled that our Loofah Bars are getting the attention they deserve. Bit we just hope people will try all our other soaps too because they all come with the same skin loving recipe, handmade by the soap makers of Quezon Province. ( 📣 yes, all our soaps, including our cupcakes and cheesecakes 🍰🍩🍦🍭)

Thanks to Charlene J. Owen for the write up in both Spot.ph and Female Network. 🍭

Lord we thank you everyday 🙏🏻

The Christmas Story

Soap updates

greetings

Unlike the past years when we had the luxury of hanging our aprons up a week before Christmas Day,  we find ourselves swamped with work. But we are not complaining.  In fact, we thank God for His blessings and we give Him back all the glory for this great opportunity.  To make others delighted and happy with the work of our hands.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth;  we have beheld his glory, glory as of the Son from the father.”  John 1:14

Christ came into the world and offered up His life as a sacrifice for our sins. This is the true meaning of Christmas.

Have a Joyful and Meaningful Holiday!🎄💕
