A FAIR TRADE WORLD aides the life of an artisan by providing her with work; work enables her to rise out of poverty. Practicing Fair Trade, A Fair Trade World pays the artisan a living wage for her skilled hand work. An artisan's quality of life can improve to include, better health care, education for her children, nutritious food, and an improved living space.
AFairTradeWorld is run totally by volunteers. Linda Edwards, founder, has run AFairTradeWorld since 2008, here in Richmond. All of the products are handcrafted by the artisans in Uganda and Thailand. The founder visits the countries and works with the volunteers. Arrangements can be made for volunteers to also go to help the artisan group.
