Dhaka Handicrafts has stepped up to the plate and made a difference for artisans in Bangladesh and the surrounding communities. They are a worker-owned organization that markets traditional handcrafted items.
They are a non-profit and deeply committed to the fair trade principles.
Targeting families who earn less than $85 a year, Dhaka represents more than 3,200 families in 64 groups in rural areas around Bangladesh.
Many of the women that Dhaka supports are the heads of the house.
This is mainly due to the high rate of divorce, being widowed, or separated that leave many women no income and vulnerable.
Dhaka pays the women fair wage, health allowance, savings, and gender equality.
They help pay the children’s way to school, offer loans, and pay the women bonuses.
Agriculture is the largest form of income for many people in the Dhaka region of Bangladesh. Second to that is small-scale handcrafted production.
