Founded in 1973 to help poorly organised artisans in Delhi. By creating markets for these struggling craftsmen, Tara Projects helps to generate steady work and income.
Their mission statement is well thought through and quite moving….
“Poverty is not only about shortage of money. It is about rights and relationships. About how people are treated and how they regard themselves. About powerlessness, exclusion and loss of dignity. Yet the lack of an adequate income is at its heart….”
They have now been able to expand their work to a 120 – mile area around Delhi. Tara Projects fund informal and vocational schools as well as literacy centres for adults and campaign and educate people about Fair Trade in order to end injustice and manipulation in the world mass trade system.
Tara have spear-headed campaigns against bonded labour, child labour, illiteracy, unfair trade practices and for ecological, environmental and female educational issues.
Our gorgeous brass cuff with white and wood beads was handmade by Fair Trade producers from Tara.
