Revolutionary thought - TenThousandvillages.com - Promoting Local disadvantaged Artisans via Market


#1

Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit fair trade organization that markets handcrafted products made by disadvantaged artisans from more than 120 artisan groups in more than 35 countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Thousand_Villages

The NGO cultivates long-term buying relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to gifts, accessories and home décor from around the world.

<strong>Comments from IdeasForSocial.org Team:</strong> What we can do from this inspiration is

  1. Encourage people buying from local artisans

  2. Create platforms/markets for people to sell and buy from Local artisans
