The Empowerment Exchange

Hi all,

I would like to help get this group off the ground. I will be looking for women's crafts, jewelry, and clothing to sell online with 100% going back to the women and their communities. I am at the beginning stages of building my business and anyone wanting to collaborate please feel free to email me. I have some wonderful ideas that I will share soon.

Also, any organizations wanting to work together please let me know. The more exposure the women get the better.

Best,
Marcie

Hi

Hi Marcie,
I think it's a very important gesture to give back what is rightfully theirs. I'm glad fair trade works and happy that handcrafts can make a population strive for a better future.
I'm a craftmaker myself and although I don't have much to give but my knowledge in this field I would love to help you in this one. I've been knitting since age of 7 and beading since age 14, so I think it's nice to teach new skills so that they can use them for this purpose.

Best of luck and all my energy!
Maria

women artisans in Morocco

Greetings, Marcie ~ I am just finishing up my Peace Corps service in Morocco. Many of my colleagues work directly with women artisans who make jewelry, rugs and more. Liaisoning with Peace Corps volunteers (in Morocco and around the world) is the ultimate in fair trade, because they work directly with village women seeking to benefit financially from their beautiful creations. Let me know and I can put you in contact with some volunteers and the local associations they serve. Best of luck!
