World Finds established the Girls Education Fund to provide additional resources to the most marginalized families in the artisan communities of India. Support includes tuition fees, school uniforms, transportation, books, and so much more.
World Finds works directly with all of the artisan groups – which include a combination of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization) members, small families of artisans, and women’s cooperatives. They are all talented, low-income artisans who are paid a livable wage and have safe working conditions, access to healthcare and childcare, and on-going training and education. Their holistic approach means they have been working with many of these groups for over a decade – during that time they have seen many artisans lift themselves out of poverty and even launch their own successful businesses, strengthening the entire community.
Any profit from the sale of these bracelets (through Healing Hollow Australia) is donated back to these communities.
