Global Goods Partners mission:
Our work, our resources and our resolve are focused on bridging gaps, opening doors and providing opportunities for artisan women to join the international marketplace.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise, Global Goods Partners (GGP) is committed to providing sustainable jobs for women—widely proven to be the key to community development and family wellbeing. In partnership with women-led, community-based organizations, GGP taps into the rich well of skill and artistry that is passed from one generation of women to the next. We invest all proceeds from product sales in developing sustainable market access as well as providing training and funding to enable our partners to prosper and thrive well into the future. As a 501(c) 3 organization, all proceeds are directed toward expanding the capacity of our artisan partners.
Since GGP first launched in 2005, we have partnered with over 60 artisan groups in more than 20 countries throughout Asia, Africa, and the Americas, helping to design and bring to market the fair trade, handcrafted products they produce. Each artisan that creates products for GGP earns reliable, fair living wages and gains experience that can add benefit to all aspects of her life.
