Check out our podcast, Hopeful World: The Social Project Podcast
In this series we shine a light on individuals and organizations taking the issues that affect our society into their own hands. At Hopeful Traders we aim to do more than just give. We want to build and connect communities where individuals are provided with opportunities to support themselves as well as the people around them. With this in mind we set out to speak to the people already making this idea a reality.
