For the 2nd year in a row, we are very pleased to participate in
The St. Francis of Assisi Church Fair Trade & Alternative Gifts Market
We are very happy to celebrate and actively support a system that insures fair wages and equity for all while restricting child labor practices and any form of slavery or servitude. Fair Trade protects the dignity of whole families by insuring that they can provide for themselves and their communities and that children can go to school instead of work. It also insures sustainable agricultural practices which protect our Earth. The GumCha4Health Project triples the income of artisan weavers while supporting public health programs that have been operating in the rural areas of West Bengal India since the 1970’s on a self-sufficient self-sustaining basis.
