Our aim is to create opportunities for economically disadvantaged artisans through innovative and sustainable programs.

I am traveling from Chengdu, China to attend the GoodFestival in Lausanne, Switzerland. There I plan to network with others with similar interests on growing innovative projects. The knowledge gained from this trip will allow us to become more financially stable and positively affect even more people. I am looking to raise $1000 to help reduce the travel costs.

We envision our social enterprise as promoting fair trade practices for those producing these products. The craftsmen or their families are mainly affected by disabilities, remoteness, disaster, disease or poverty. We are not just promoting a working environment to allow people to earn a living but saving old cultural methods of creating art.

This has the double effect of creating a more financially stable community but ensuring the survival of these culturally important, artistic methods.
