Contributing organizations include:
Itza Wood (San Andrés, Guatemala) creates jobs and fosters positive social impact by creating local, sustainable employment. Their carpenters live in local communities where families are struggling to ensure basic human services. They have planted over 45,000 trees to combat deforestation in the area and only use sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood.
Canaan Palestine (Burqin, Palestine) works with over 2,000 artisan family farms from 52 villages that have practiced sustainable regenerative agricultural methods for centuries. They engage year-round with these communities, committed to long-term partnerships with fair trade principles that ensure transparency, full direct payment, fair prices and purchase guarantees.
Atelier Calla (Port-au-Prince, Haiti) was started in 2007 to revitalize the artisan work with bone, horn, and wood in Haiti while combating the low employment rate and degrading education system. Each purchase of Atelier Calla products contributes to job creation in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
Women’s Bean Project (Denver, CO, US) believes that all women have the power to transform their lives through employment. They hire women who are chronically unemployed and teach them to work by making nourishing products, while acquiring the tools needed to sustain themselves and their families for a lifetime.
