sōjərn/: A temporary stop where a traveler resides; respite on a journey
Sojourn Studio is an artisan community, under the wing of Global Child Advocates, created to empower, equip and give hope to Burmese teens on the Thai/Burma(Myanmar) border. These girls and their families are vulnerable to poverty, trafficking, and worst of all, hopelessness. Sojourn Studio is a stopping place for them to develop skills, practices and confidence to grow into their lives with hope-filled forward motion.
I had the honor of bringing my passion for ceramic jewelry to their program as a teacher in 2017. Just 6 months later they were producing and selling their own beautiful work! You can shop for their designs here!
