FAQ for Stores Associates



Story behind the store/organization?

In 2004, after multiple trips to India, Vicki Moore learned the prevalence of human trafficking in India, 200 women and girls forced into the sex trade daily. Vicki listened to an interview of a young woman rescued. She lacked education and skills and pleaded with listeners to teach her so she would have dignity through work. Vicki felt a calling to empower such women. Rahab’s Rope was first introduced in Bangalore, India. This began the journey of bringing hope and restoration. Rahab’s Rope now operates in four locations, running fourteen programs and positively impacting thousands of lives.

What profit goes back to our programs?

We also ask you to prayerfully consider joining us in India on the frontlines of our work. And last but not least, please make the work the God is doing through Rahab’s Rope apart of your daily prayer. There is nowhere more important for this work to be done.

Do we support or work with other Anti-human trafficking org in the USA?

While the call put on Vicki’s heart by God called her specifically to combat human trafficking in India, Rahab’s Rope works to help provide for and support other organizations fighting the same fight at home. We are able to provide financially when needs arise for these other organizations, spread awareness in speaking engagements, and share resources. Additionally, Rahab’s Rope provides an outlet for women who are victims of commercial sexual explotation in a local rehabilitation program to fulfill each step of their recovery process by working alongside our staff in our warehouse space.

5. The Turtle Foundation 

Turtle Joe, a Miami born native, set out with a mission to change the world in any way that he could. 20 years ago, Turtle Joe accidentally met an artisan family while on a trip to Ecuador. He grew his relationship with this family and started SS Handcrafted Art. Since then, he has founded the Turtleman Foundation, which was his lifelong dream to be able to give back to the oceans and sea turtles. Turtle Joe is the friendly face so many know and love behind SS Handcrafted Art. He is always the smiling face and has always enjoyed bringing a smile to all he is able to meet. Founded by Joe and his wife, Ana, 20 years ago, SS Handcrafted Art is a family owned and operated business.  

6. Anju Jewelry 

Anju’s passion for jewelry and design started at a very early age. She was born in the beautiful and colorful state of Rajasthan in India, surrounded by a rich culture, natural beauty, and a creative environment. In 1993 Anju and Gaurav Agarwal invested in their future and moved to America. While Gaurav spent his days working on his Ph.D, Anju began using her eclectic eye for beauty and flare, to make jewelry and sell it at local craft fairs. As her jewelry sales began to take off, Gaurav quit his job so he could focus all of his attention on helping Anju grow her jewelry business. On a trip back home Anju met a talented but struggling group of artisans that could not keep consistent work. It was then Anju decided to partner with this artisan group and move manufacturing back home to India where she knew she could provide these artisans with consistent work. We are happy to say that more than 12 years later we are still working with this very same artisan group + many more, and over the years their quality of life has improved significantly. Each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted by artisans and hand-packed with care in our Atlanta, GA showroom. Anju’s exposure to different cultures has been a lasting source of inspiration which springs to life in her unique design concepts. 

Our mission at Anju is to create unique, hand-crafted products that blend traditional craftsmanship with modern trends. By partnering with artisan groups we are able to provide an economic opportunity for our artisans and their families in an environment that supports cultural heritage, creative expression, and fair trade practices. 

We have established a consistent source of employment for our artisans, creating more job opportunities while maintaining a family-friendly environment that prioritizes their well-being. Our female artisans have the flexibility to work from home or bring their children to work, and as a result, many have been able to provide their children with educational opportunities they may not have had access to previously. This initiative empowers marginalized women to earn their own income and gives them the freedom to spend it as they see fit. 

As we continue to expand our support for these artisans, they can safeguard and pass down traditional techniques and craftsmanship that have been cherished for generations. Without this support, many of these exquisite crafts would be at risk of disappearing entirely. Your purchase plays a vital role in helping us sustain these artisans’ livelihoods and significantly enhance the quality of their lives. 

7. Blue Cattle Truck Vanilla 

The story of Blue Cattle Truck Trading Company’s Mexican vanilla is the story of a family tradition and the woman who helped bring it to the world. 

Before co-founding Blue Cattle Truck Trading Company, Molly Anderson was the highest ranking woman in the U.S. steel industry. As part of her duties as transportation director at her steel plant, she frequently traveled to Mexico to purchase rail cars. Any time she would venture south of the border, friends would ask her to bring back Mexican vanilla. With a personal desire to always seek quality products, Molly did not simply grab the most convenient bottle to appease them. She researched and sampled the abundant varieties. Soon she found herself on a quest for the perfect vanilla. 

On one particular trip deep into the Veracruz region of Mexico, Molly fortuitously met the Canosa family. The Canosa’s had fled war-torn Spain in 1917, shortly after World War I, and settled in Mexico. Grandfather Jose Canosa soon established a vanilla plantation, and the family had been producing award-winning vanilla in Veracruz ever since. As with good coffee or fine wine, the perfect vanilla requires a unique environment to flourish. Veracruz, Mexico provides that perfect environment. And the Canosa family’s methods of production have continually crafted a superior vanilla by producing it in small batches and allowing the perfect amount of time to distill. In meeting the Canosa family, Molly knew her search for the perfect vanilla was complete. 

For years Molly imported small quantities of vanilla for family and friends. Addictions for the secret vanilla became overwhelming and soon she realized it was time to share the Canosa crafted vanilla with the world. In 1999 she joined forces with her childhood friend, Sherry Dixon, and together they established the Blue Cattle Truck Trading Company. 

8. Himalayan Tapestry 

Within each stitch of the Himalayan Tapestry artisans’ handiwork is a story of illiteracy, abuse within marriage, and culturally conditioned gender discrimination. While these Indian women suffer quietly, they are expected to carry the financial burden of their families. The women come to Himalayan Tapestry with little education and no basic skills, but here they learn to quilt, tailor, read, and manage money. Working with this organization enables women to make money from their new talents, and it enables them to receive crisis counseling, which brings financial and emotional comfort to their troubled lives.
