Sperantsa means “hope.” That is what we are about. Sperantsa was founded with the mission to empower self help programs all over the world and eradicate poverty. We partner with self-help or fair trade companies which give their impoverished employees a fair wage so that they can buy all the necessities they need and help bring themselves out of poverty. We are excited to partner with our first distributor DeCe, which until now was only available in Europe. We are the only company in the USA (we are Seattle based) that sells DeCe hats, hand-crocheted by Roma mothers in Romania.
