Company Introduction:

This company is a social enterprise to benefit those affected by disasters, illness or poverty, and minority people living in remote areas. It has a craft, gift and coffee shop to sell hand made products from these people in order to expand their market and bring their skills and their needs before a larger section of the community. A large percentage of profits go towards community development projects and to benefit those with particular needs. We practice under fair trade principles to ensure craftsmen get fair reward for their skills and time. We also train to improve those skills, promote innovation and preserve cultural and artistic talents particularly as they are expressed by these more disadvantaged people. Selling their handcrafts helps these people maintain a basic standard of living, provides basic needs for them and their families, and in turn, keeps them from begging on the streets.
