Volunteering/Community Service/Social Entreprenuership Skill Building

Description

PoP stands for “Power of Positivity” and through the PoPstrings Project, residents at Star Shelter have been introduced to bracelet-braiding - a new hobby to bond over and find joy in. For them, PoPstrings is a means of supplemental income from the sales of handmade creations.

Over the past 5 years, PoPstrings Project has also worked with Babes, a teenage pregnancy crisis service to teach these young moms the art of mindful braiding and we continue to explore new opportunities to work with women on initiatives that resonate with our cause and purpose of upliftment and empowerment.

The foundations of PoPstrings have been built on strong support from volunteers that participate in activities such as training, beading & braiding, administration support, and a lot of behind-the-scenes work which allows us to create and sell these beautiful pieces of jewelry.  

The PoPstrings Project is entirely run by volunteers which we are so ever grateful for and we are looking to recruit more volunteers to bring PoPstrings to another level! Here at PoPstrings, we believe in contributing back to society and doing good.
