An email was received from Sana saying that her family and members of the community make jewelry, but were being mistreated by their current employers. She had learned that there were companies that respect their rights to earn a fair wage and be treated with dignity and respect, Sana found hope for future and fair employment.
"When we seen your website we feeling there is someone in the world who can take care people like us," Sana writes. Moved by the story of the Ana Art Group, their willingness to work and the beautiful products made by this small community, a local fair trade organization brought them into their fair trade workshop. Not only are they now sustainably employed, they have gained respect for their generations of jewelry skills.
