Economic Opportunity

Concern America partners with several artisan cooperatives around the world. We work with cooperatives from their formation through their organization so they are able to make and sell their crafts for fair and equitable sources of income.

Concern America buys crafts from these cooperatives in Bangladesh, El Salvador, Mexico, and Guatemala, which give these (mostly) women a source of steady income. A job instills dignity and stability in their families and communities, and these cooperatives take the funds received from their work and invest it back into the community.

You can also be part of these fair trade efforts! Visit our online Artisan Marketplace, learn how to host a craft sale, or attend a craft sale by checking our calendar.
