FAIR TRADE EMPOWERS WOMEN
It is a way for people to escape poverty and to empower themselves by using their skills and creativity.
In this way, artisans are able to raise their standards of living and to be able provide adequate nutrition,
housing & education for their families. Fair trade also creates gender equality, giving women power and
choices over their body, their children and their future. Additionally, when people from rural areas, are
given the opportunity to sell their products at a fair price, they can afford to keep their children with
them and raise them in the family, instead of sending them to the cities to fend for themselves and to
send money back to the rural villages to provide for the family. All of this raises the level of dignity,
happiness, peace and equality that each one of us deserve.
When you purchase items from filosophy, you can be assured that you are directly impacting the artisan
themselves. We buy our products directly from the artisans who makes them, cutting out the middle men and
ensuring fair prices for the artist and for you. Filosophy provides a necessary market place for these artisans to
sell their products & improve their lively hood.
