We’re on Tour!
We’re on Tour!
Today we kicked off our Fall 2012 Artisan Tour with a visit to Bloomington, Indiana. Over the next week or so we will travel to four states and the District of Columbia as part of our tour with seamstress and businesswoman Hannah Dodoo. Hannah is a founding member of Global Mamas, a Fair Trade cooperative of energetic and ambitious women in Ghana. For years Hannah studied and worked in fashion and after securing a small loan she successfully began her own business. Now with employees of her own Hannah makes sure they have access to opportunity and a guaranteed standard of living.
You have the chance to learn about Hannah and Global Mama’s story! Take a look at our schedule (more events to come) and come visit us at one of our many events.
