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.

The Producers The women employed by Dece are all living in difficult circumstances. Dece generally works by helping a mother of a big family to learn a trade which enables her to work from home. This means that she doesn’t need any former education or experience, so it is never too late for a family. The mother can stay at home, washing and cooking and looking after her kids, whilst also earning money through Dece. Their wage can be the difference between having food, medicine and firewood for their families, or not.<br></br>
