Women's Literacy Project
In partnership with Matr Boomie, Kindred Handcrafts will be collecting donations to help support their women's literacy program. Literacy is essential to women becoming more empowered in their communities. Without the ability to read and write, women can feel
dismissed by society and sometimes taken advantage of in work or personal life. Education gives these women much needed confidence to create positive change in their families and become leaders in their communities.
A sponsorship of $1200 will cover the yearly program costs for up to 30 women that includes
one teacher's salary, basic stationery, writing tools and books, teaching aids to help run the class, and infrastructure expenditure.
When you make a purchase with Kindred, you will be given the option to round up your total to the nearest dollar to send the additional change to the Women's Literacy Program. Those that donate will be given a red bindi to show your support for women's empowerment!

What is Fair Trade?
Fair trade is paying artisans and producers a fair wage in their local economy. Fair Trade is assuring good working conditions and no child labor. Fair Trade is sustainable business practices and stewardship of the environment. Fair Trade helps preserve cultural traditions and values. Join us in supporting fair trade for artisans, farmers and producers around the world.
