Education And More works with six artisan groups to help them earn a fair wage in
addition to receiving many other benefits for their families and communities. We have
formed a partnership with these groups and work with them using Fair Trade guidelines.
Education And More is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation!
Maria hand weaves belts, shawls,
neckscarves and a variety of other
items at her home in the western
highlands of Guatemala. She and the
other weavers in the group were
devastated when a tropical storm
caused mudslides that swept away
their homes and many of their family
"The work we do with Education And
More is helping us to rebuild our lives.
We thank God for the help they are
giving us!" -- Maria
"I am so glad to be able to help my family with
the sales of my weavings," says Rosario.
Because of Education And More's work with
her weaving group she is able to care for her
children and home while doing her weaving
each day -- without leaving home.
"Thank you to all of the customers of
Education And More for the purchase of our
placemats, napkins and other weavings. It has
helped us so much!" Rosario adds.
"I have been weaving all of my life but now I
can earn money to help my family buy
food," states Dominga.
With her weaving, Dominga also helps her
daughter's family as much as she can with
their daily expenses and in educating the
Augustina is now raising two grandchildren and hopes to
be able to send them to school.
"By selling my weavings, I have been able to help care
for the grandchildren and provide regular meals for them.
Thank you to Education And More for all their help!"
Recently Education And More provided a new sewing
center, lessons and machines to her group as an added
benefit for them. Augustina was not able to learn to sew
but her grown daughter has learned and now is a part of
the group and earning money with her sewing.
