Mission Statement

HandCrafting Justice is a fair trade partnership working with women struggling for economic justice and independence in developing countries. As an international network, we work in partnership with women and those in social and economic distress. We promote human dignity and justice by creating opportunities for economic and social transformation. We do this by: * Marketing items they make * Raising consciousness of the situations in which they live * Creating opportunities for women and men in the U.S. to get involved * Telling the stories of women, men and children * Creating networks of justice and solidarity in search of sustainable economic options for those in the developing world

Description

HandCrafting Justice is a project of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. We work in cooperation with women struggling for economic justice and independence in the developing world. We support them and assist them in their efforts to create employment for themselves in order to provide for their families and better their lives. Our focus is on the development of the whole person. Through various partnerships and projects, the network of HandCrafting Justice (and of the broader international network) work with artisans to effect positive and long-term changes in their lives. These changes include the development of literacy skills and a sense of self-worth, outreach to marginalized, disabled and isolated persons (such as those with HIV/AIDS) and the provision of day care for children.

The goods are all hand made and are beautiful. the monies made go directly to support the women who are making the goods.
