For more than 60 years, Ten Thousand Villages has been establishing long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans lack opportunities for stable income. All artisans are fairly paid for their products.
Ten Thousand Villages Alexandria is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries.
Our mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships.
Funds raised through Spring2ACTion will promote fair trade efforts in and around our local community. Part of these proceeds will support our volunteer program, the efforts of which make our operations possible.
