Nutritional Empowerment in the Amazon
The Nutritional Empowerment Project was a collaborative effort between Shopping for a Change and the Faire Collection, formerly known as the Andean Collection. It was jointly funded with net proceeds from our 2013 sales, and an in-kind contribution by the Faire Collection. Our efforts were focused on supporting local Kichwa artisans in the Ecuadorian Amazon region in a sustainable farming project. The Kichwa's persistent issues with access to food and the effects of malnourishment were problems we were determined to help them solve. Details of the project are available as a downloadable pdf file. Click to Download.
