BENEFITING: TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES OF CINCINNATI INC
As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items.
- We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income.
- We create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships.
- We lay the groundwork for sustainable change by providing a space for people to take charge of their own lives and build something for themselves.
- We offer a way for you to become part of the story, to shop your values and give gifts with meaning. Because this is bigger than us. Your donations will help Ten Thousand Villages Cincinnati work toward our vision: that one day, all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality.
