I have been contributing to the CPALI cause for about three years now, because it combines two vitally important goals: ecosystem preservation and reduction of poverty. Moreover, the organization works directly with silk farmers, without bureaucracy or overhead, to teach them the best practices. CPALI provides frequent and substantive updates about their ongoing projects, so that donors and volunteers stay connected with the organization. I work for a nonprofit fair trade organization, and am convinced that the only way to alleviate global poverty is, not through aid, but rather via organization such as CPALI which restore dignity and provide a means for people to earn a fair working wage.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the beautiful products made of silk.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated, driven and sincere.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About once a year
