Fair Trade Women’s Groups

We are working with several women’s groups in Guatemala to help them  obtaelania1in a fair wage through Fair Trade practices which we have implemented with each group.  So that you can learn more about the women in each group we have updated our website and included information about each group.  Read more about the women’s groups here.copy-of-dsc00954

Take time and get to know the women, then look over the beautiful handcrafts they make which are also on our website.

We have two upcoming Fair Trade bazaars in November.  The first one is Saturday, Nov 8 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Topeka Kansas.  Stop by and visit and see the handcrafts in person.clementina

The second bazaar is at the Ecumenical Christian Ministries Fair Trade Holiday Market at Kansas University — 12th and Oread in Lawrence, Kansas.  This is a week long sale and begins the day after Thanksgiving — open most of each day.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures and information of the women’s groups that make all the beautiful handcrafted items we enjoy from Education and More. It’s nice to be able to see the faces and learn the stories of those we’re helping when we purchase their handcrafts, donate to, or sponsor.

    Thanks for the kind words! It does always help to put a name with a face and to learn about the lives of those we want to help!
    Thanks!
