It’s always cool to see one of our social enterprise partners get publicity outside of our blogosphere. Women’s Bean Project recently received some of the spotlight from PBS show Newshour. The story follows a woman named Rosie Robinson and how the Women’s Bean Project helped her get out of the prison/poverty cycle and become more self sufficient. The clip also dives into the history of Women’s Bean Project and how it got to be where it is today.
What do you all think?
