RURAL DEVELOPMENT COOPERATIVES

Many of the rural regions of India are agricultural, which means villagers migrate to cities for seasonal, exploitative work. Other areas are too dry and arid to support agriculture, so artisans rely solely on craft production for income. Living wages, however, are only the start to a true fair trading partnership. We also seek to improve artisans’ quality of life and ensure sustainability of their craft. Social development programs such as training, education and health care go hand-in-hand with environmental impact projects such as recycling, water filtration and solar-powered energy. Conserving resources and caring for the environment ensures sustainable employment can be passed down through generations.
