Dhaka Handicrafts: working for the artisans

With around 165.000.000 people, Bangladesh is the 7th most populated country of the world though we barely hear about it in the news. A large percentage (30%) of the population lives with less than 1US$ a day and child labour is widely spread in Bangladesh as a consequence of poverty. So here more than elsewhere, Fair Trade has an important role to play in order to provide better living conditions.Fair Trade Connection

During our visit to Dhaka, we met and worked with Dhaka Handicrafts, a fair trade organization that mainly produces basketery items. They focus on helping women in rural areas by providing them work so that they can become an “earning source” in the family which means more respect and freedom of expression.

Discover the great work that they are doing with this presentation video by Fair Trade Connection.
