Now they are empowered to earn a stable, healthy income through dignified work (we call this a "prosperity wage").
This is the basis for a brighter future, built on a hand up, not a handout. Our Mission is simple - to improve the lives of some of the people with whom we share this planet.
We do this by offering income-generating opportunities to craftspeople in developing countries by following fair trade practices including paying in advance at least the market price for items, ensuring that craftspeople receive payment, and ensuring that the craftspeople work in fair working conditions.
