As an award-winning philanthropist for my work in Haiti, I’ve witnessed the impact of fair trade products on entire communities. Fair trade goods ensure artisans receive a fair price for their work. A fair price means artisans receive wages to afford life’s essentials such as food and education. Fair trade products are a sustainable way to make a living. They also provide economic empowerment through meaningful work.
How Catalyst Collections Fair Trade Gifts Support Women
Catalyst Collections works to revive artisan capacity and entrepreneurship in Iraq and Haiti. Through social enterprise hubs, operated in Baghdad and Port-au-Prince, Catalyst Collections works with resilient and determined women.
Many women Catalyst Collection works with have faced a lifetime of struggle in countries where it’s hard to earn an income, let alone get ahead. The purchase of one a handcrafted product from Catalyst Collection gives one of these incredible women an income for themselves and their family.
With each purchase, you support a mother, daughter, wife, entrepreneur, sister, and artisan. 100% of the profit from your purchase is re-invested into the local enterprise hubs to support the continued development of local business and artisan skills.
