Ten Thousand Villages, a Fair Trade non-profit retailer, is seeking motivated volunteers to engage with customers and share the Ten Thousand Villages mission; help them find what they are looking for and make their purchases.

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.

Description

The company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income.
