Fair Trade Benefits = School Supplies For Students

Today was the meeting with our group, Artesana’s T’zaput, to give out school supplies for all the children of the women in the group who are in school.  We had many eager children and smiling moms picking up the book bag of supplies.

The entire group came to the meeting with all the children — all 32 children.  Their school starts in another week and the children are really excited about returning to school.  These children don’t have all the activities available to them that kids in the States have so returning to school is something they look forward to after their vacation break during November and December.

We are accepting donations for the Educational Support Fund to help the children of more artisan groups.
