Mission Statement

Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to 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.


Ten Thousand Villages Lincoln was started by a small group of people right here in Lincoln 35 years ago. These people saw a unique opportunity to affect change in alleviating poverty on a global scale, specifically with marginalized people in developing nations. They started very small, by purchasing fair trade handicrafts and selling them in their church basement. As they were able to purchase more and more, they realized they could think even bigger and start a store to support these artisan makers all over the globe! They eventually opened a store front and kept on growing into the non-profit, fair trade store we are today. We are our own non-profit organization, with our own board of directors and a large pool of committed volunteers!



We'll work with your schedule.
