Ten Thousand Villages

Comprising a worldwide network dedicated to the reversal of poverty, Ten Thousand Villages fills its retail locations with products gathered from 38 developing societies. Businesswoman Edna Ruth Byler began the fair-trade practice of paying cash advances to far-flung artisans more than 60 years ago, which established the company's long-term project of empowerment via nonexploitative commerce. Each handcrafted item or handwritten finance textbook that makes it to a Ten Thousand Villages store is priced according to the specific socio-economic milieu in which the artisan works, which helps ensure just compensation and proportional economic impact. Ten Thousand Villages has been lauded for its environmental and philanthropic ambitions and was recently named one of the world's most ethical companies by Forbes magazine.
