BRIDGE OF HOPE, PERU
Bridge of Hope is confronting the root causes of poverty by providing an alternative way of doing business, in order that the artisans from the most impoverished areas of the country have opportunity for development and direct access to markets. They promote Fair Trade in order to offer the producers and artisans of Peru acceptable social and labor conditions and a just wage for their work. WFTO member.
