During the month of May, students around the country begin to celebrate the culmination of their education with graduation ceremonies and parties. This time of year always reminds us of the excitement that comes with completing your studies, and the importance that education will play in an individual's future.
Today is World Fair Trade Day. For Anchal, fair trade is about safe and empowering working conditions as well as developing transparent and accountable relationships with our artisans, staff and customers.
Like many Anchal artisans, and mothers around the world, for that matter, Maya is the glue of her family. She added, “if there are problems, big or small, I can stay positive, stay focused and find a solution.”
International Women’s Day presents a unique opportunity for Anchal artisans to leave behind their obligations, abuse and daily struggles and surround themselves with a network of support and a platform to share their stories.
In a selfless nature that only other mothers could understand, Anchal artisans continue to put their families first, not only in their financial investments, but in their hopes, dreams, and plans for the future.
