Products are identified, created, and sold, providing income for the orphanage and educating children about business and financial management. Profits from the products help the orphanage to become self-sustaining. The youth who participate in the program receive some of the money earned to help them start a savings account.
Jose currently works at Products of Hope which is what the Sustainability Program is called at Refugio de Esperanza in Santa Cruz.
