Hand-made Thursdays: Global Goods Partners
Global Goods Partners (GGP) is a NY-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering women to achieve economic security, education and health care for themselves and their families. They have some gorgeous summer jewelry, hand-made from natural fibers and seeds, including bracelets from Colombia and necklaces from Argentina and Brazil. The circle necklace is patterned with seeds, the ivory-colored necklace is made from Tagua ($20.00), the colorful single and double-stranded necklaces are made from the pit of Açai berries, and the bracelets are made from naturally dyed caña flecha fiber ($35.00 each).
Global Goods Partners (GGP) employs the Fair Trade model as the engine of change and supports women-led community based organizations in marginalized regions in Asia, Africa, and the Americas by providing grants and technical assistance, and securing access to markets in the US for the handcrafted products they produce. They also have a Fair Trade Fundraising Program for schools and non-profits. Read how you can incorporate fair trade jewelry, bags, and accessories into your next fundraising project.
