GOEX recently joined the Haiti Artisan Collective, a group of independent but like-minded brands who are caring for makers in Haiti through the dignity of work.
Collectively, this group employs more than 500 artisans in Haiti! By joining together in the Collective, we can share resources and best practices, encourage one another and cross-promote!
In Haiti, the power of a fair wage job is more life changing than ever! The unemployment rates continues to rise while the currency devalues against the dollar and simply moving around the country is more difficult and dangerous than ever before. But all of our artisans continue to work because they feel cared for and respected by their employers and because a job gives them freedom and power.
But we can’t accomplish this without the army of consumers who choose to purchase the goods we bring to market so thank you!!
