More Than Fair
Since 2014, Thistle Farms Global has worked with artisan survivors to establish new enterprises and ensure existing small businesses are receiving just compensation for their work.
Through resources and investments, we help improve product development, programming, and access to larger markets.By reducing links in the supply chain, producers gain higher wages.
We specifically assist with the development of UN Sustainable Development Goals:
1- No Poverty
5- Gender Equality
8- Decent Work and Economic Growth
An investment in women producers heals families and lifts communities out of extreme poverty.
Connecting Women Producers To Socially Conscious Consumers
Shared Trade Advantage
Global partners gain access to a network of similar missions and benefit from inclusion in a larger community.
With the support of Thistle Farms Global, partner enterprises are able to hire more women, increase wages and reinvest in the needs of their communities.
OUR PARTNERS SHARE THESE VALUES
Growing Justice Partnerships
Each year, we identify partners with great potential and help scale their impact. These partners are typically at a vulnerable stage in growth, and are in need of capital, training, and market development.
We have launched four programs and helped grow four other enterprises, including:
- A residential program in Belize
- An irrigation system in Rwanda
- An moringa enterprise in Mexico
- A weaving enterprise in a refugee camp in Greece
Currently, we are offering funding and resources to program participants during the pandemic.
