About Us

Buttons 4 Hope focuses on training people to make jewellery and corporate gifts, incorporating buttons in the design. All our products are made from recycled or commercially unusable buttons. Most of these buttons used have been donated. Profits are used in the transfer of skills to our program participants.

We have projects running at various organisations assisting the disabled, women in shelters, hospitals and we work with people living with HIV/AIDS.

We train these people to produce jewellery for their own use and for resale. Sometimes their own organisation sells these items at fund raisers, or we sell on their behalf through established charity shops like St. Luke's and St. Anne's and at various other small craft markets.

The proceeds are used for acquisition of educational equipment or other basic necessities and for purchase of new raw materials in order to make more stock to sell and keep generating income.
