 Our goal at Ten Thousand Villages isn't simply to sell product for our artisans.  We want to be a link between the consumer and the maker.  It's to put a face and a story behind every product.  We aim to educate our community about the importance of fair trade and ethical consumerism. Our organization is deeply rooted in our community outreach programs and these programs are a part of our history, our present and our future!

Our organization actively promotes our mission, our artisans and their products by going out into the Lincoln community to tell their stories.  We give presentations to groups all over the Lincoln area, free of charge, about fair trade! 

Educational Programs Available:

  • Empowering Women Through Fair Trade
  • Fair Trade 101: History and Principles of the Fair Trade Movement
  • Fair Trade and the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle)
  • Preventing Human Trafficking Through Fair Trade
  • Handmade Hannah: Fair Trade for Children, Youth & Multiage Groups

We also strive to create culturally diverse and educational events in our store on a regular basis.  We organize in-store events such as our International Women's Day Celebration and World Fair Trade Day Celebration.  We host groups from the diverse Lincoln community to share their art, talent, and culture with customers and event attendees.  We try to create a sense of community in our store that reflects and celebrates our amazing city.   

You can help us reach even more people and in turn, keep the cycle of ethical consumerism growing. Alleviating poverty on a global scale can happen and it can happen from right here in Lincoln! Think global and act local.  Donate to Ten Thousand Villages Lincoln today!
