BENEFITING: TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES OF CINCINNATI INC
Our store is a non-profit organization. Most of our revenue comes from your purchases, but with the temporary closure of our stores, we lost our main mechanism to carry out our mission.
We have been bringing fair trade to the Queen City for almost twenty years, and we want to be around for another 20- providing opportunity to artisans around the world who use steady, fair wages to lift themselves out of generational poverty.
Would you consider a donation to invest in our artisans?
As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items.We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. We 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. We lay the groundwork for sustainable change by providing a space for people to take charge of their own lives and build something for themselves. We offer a way for you to become part of the story, to shop your values and give gifts with meaning. Because this is bigger than us. Your donations will help Ten Thousand Villages Cincinnati work toward our vision: that one day, all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality.
