Esperanza En Accion Fair Trade Organization Charity Profile

Our Mission is two-fold:Economically empowering Nicaraguan producers and their families –- artisans, a sewing cooperative fair trade garment factory (comprised of former sweatshop workers), and coffee farming cooperatives –- to lift themselves out of poverty through fair trade
Empowering people of the “First World” through economic justice education to transform our global economic system into one that is fair for ALL people.

Our CommitmentEsperanza en Acción's commitment is to buy directly from the producers and pay a fair price for their work, thus empowering them to cover basic needs including food, shelter, education, and health care for their families.

We desire to establish long-term relationships with these producers and promote their talents in a way that preserves their cultural identity.

We strive to educate consumers about the often hidden human costs of our "bargains." By providing information about producers' history, culture and living conditions, we hope to enhance cross-cultural understanding and respect between consumers and communities in the developing world.
