The World Market - Empower Artisans Around The World
Organized by: Allison Schultz
A jewelry maker in Peru, a dress maker in Somalia, a wood carver in Indonesia...there are thousands of gifted artisans around the world working hard to create beautiful works of art. They work to feed their families, to send their children to school, to try to make a better life. But many of these artisans live in impoverished rural communities in undeveloped or developing countries, and they don't have the resources to access a larger market for their goods. Our goal with this fundraiser is to build an active online marketplace and a network of people that helps connect these artisans to people everywhere. We hope to search communities all over the world to find these gifted artisans and help them sell their works in our global marketplace so that people everywhere can access their goods and enjoy their culture and craftsmanship. With your help, this world market can change people's lives, empower women, and grow economies worldwide. Be a part of this wonderful project, empower the world, give today! Thank you!
