People of Hope

Submitted by on Saturday, 27 February 2010No Comment

pohc-logoPeople of Hope Crafts supports a network of 20 artisan cooperatives throughout El Salvador through the sales & marketing of their crafts in the United States. We are committed to paying fair wages and establishing sustainable livelihoods. Our artisans are paid up-front: half of the total upon placement of our order, half upon receipt. This practice ensures that the artisans’ income is not contingent upon our sales, even if we are unable to sell an item. Our artisan groups are a fascinating mixture of individuals including women’s cooperatives, cooperatives of Salvadorans with disabilities, and urban and rural groups. Some groups work in established workshops, while others produce the handicrafts in their homes. Help support artisans by visiting http://www.peopleofhopecrafts.org
