World Crafts

We are committed to the in-country partners and artisan groups with whom we work. Our aim is to develop viable employment for women and men in poverty. Why? So women no longer need to turn to prostitution for their next meal. So fathers and mothers can provide education and nutrition to their children.

We are holistic. Our artisan groups seek to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of their workers. Men and women receive job training and enjoy comfort, camaraderie, friendship, and purpose, perhaps for the first time. Women find a safe haven and receive counseling as they leave the sex industry. Individuals and families discover the abundant life and see that life lived out in front of them.

We are fair trade.  WorldCrafts abides by and requires all partnering artisan groups to abide by Fair Trade Federation guidelines. Fair-trade buyers, such as WorldCrafts, ensure that artisans receive fair wages and the goods purchase were produced in an ethical and environmentally-friendly manner.

WorldCrafts is a division of WMU.
