Artisans of Hope launches the Hanapbuhay series

In its new art series that uses a mix of Nespresso capsules, ceramic tiles, scrap fabric and acrylic paint, NVC’s artisans tell the story of industrious men and women who use their skills to earn a living for their families. The fabric was donated by Sepia Designs, which specializes in women’s clothing in Bacolod.

The art pieces also pay tribute to the people whom NVC has served with various livelihood tools, and many of whom continue to pay forward the love they’ve received.

This art piece is named Rhodora. It portrays a real-life Rhodora from a fishing village who received a sewing machine from Project Joseph, while her husband Gary (seen through the window) sails on a Peter Project boat. They have attached a better dwelling to their once-crumbling house because their two livelihood gifts have substantially contributed to increased family income.
If you gave one of the 4,974 Peter Project boats that sail on the shores of 17 provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, this piece depicting the pulse of the shoreline when fishermen arrive home with a full catch is our tribute to your generosity.
This piece, Street Food, not only celebrates the wealth of tastes, smells, sights, and sounds created by food vendors but also celebrates the people who have received food carts and other cooking implements through Project Joseph, allowing them to better feed others as well as themselves.
