Event Details

Green Drinks Indy and Global Gifts invite you to share a vision for a Fair Trade world. Join us to see, shop and learn. Free snacks and drinks will be served. Here’s a brief story on how your shopping habits can help others.

"Nancy hopes you will buy jewelry. Lots of jewelry. Her life depends on it. Nancy lives in Kenya and, like more than 1.6 million people in her country, Nancy has AIDS. After her husband died, things were very difficult for her. Her family shunned her and she was unable to find work due to the stigma of her illness. Without work, she could not get access to life-saving medications, or even necessities like food and shelter.

Enter Imani Workshops, a fair trade organization based in Kenya that provides skills training and vital employment opportunities to women with HIV/AIDS like Nancy. In addition, Imani’s employees are given access to medical care. Today, Nancy works in the beading department at Imani Workshops, where she makes beautiful, colorful jewelry. This job provides her with a stable, livable wage that has allowed her to provide for herself and her young son.

Around the world, disadvantaged artisans like Nancy rely on fair trade organizations like Imani Workshops for safe working conditions, fair wages, and gender equality. Here in the U.S., when we buy fair trade products, our purchases have a direct impact on the artisans and farmers who have made them."

Join us at Global Gifts, a 100% fair trade retailer, to learn more about these incredible organizations, the artisans whose lives are impacted, and how your buying decisions make a big difference.
