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

Ten Thousand Villages operates as a business, marketing quality products from diverse cultures around the world made by people that we know and care enough about to do business in a manner that together we consider fair. Ten Thousand Villages of Alexandria is a fair trade retail store that markets the arts and crafts of people in developing countries who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed. Our objective is to provide vital, fair income to these artisans. This income empowers them to secure food, education and healthcare for their families, to improve their housing and to contribute to their communities.
