Change the World with WorldCrafts

Want to change the lives of poverty-stricken and exploited men and women around the world? There’s no better time to start than October, which is Fair Trade Month. And there’s no better way to start than by supporting WorldCrafts, a division of WMU.

WorldCrafts develops sustainable, fair-trade businesses among impoverished people worldwide. Its vision is to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth.

WorldCrafts is committed to its in-country partners and artisan groups. It develops viable employment for poverty-stricken and exploited women and men.

WorldCrafts is holistic. Its artisan groups meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of their workers. Men and women receive job training, comfort, camaraderie, and the promise of eternal hope.

According to the White Rainbow Project in India, “our ongoing involvement with WorldCrafts has enabled 18 widowed women to learn sewing skills in a safe, loving environment where they are cared for and believed in. The accomplishment of finishing an order of scarves has boosted the confidence it takes to deepen our relationships and build trust as a ministry.”

WorldCrafts is fair trade. WorldCrafts abides by and requires all partnering artisan groups to abide by Fair Trade Federation guidelines. As a fair-trade buyer, WorldCrafts ensures that artisans receive fair wages and that the goods purchased are produced in an ethical and eco-friendly manner.
