I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...getting to know the artists, hearing their stories of how the market has empowered them through classes in business and marketing to go back to their communities and expand their own business and/or cooperative. With the additional income they have started schools, hospitals, drilled water wells and generally improved the living conditions in their communities.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would like to see the market expanded to other locations so that more artists from around the world could be involved. This would insure a sustainable living for the artists and their families and help preserve their art and culture.
