Written By: MIM!—One Mango Tree uses a fair trade model to provide income generating opportunities for women in impoverished and conflict-ridden areas of the globe. Their first project —an organization of tailors—is now well underway in Gulu, Northern Uganda. The project has enabled tailors to move from their cramped market stall and into a spacious compound just on the outskirts of town, improving the quality of their workplace and bringing together tailors from various locations. See the beautiful efforts of their work by visiting www.onemangotree.com where you can purchase beautiful handcrafted accessories such as the bag pictured on the right.
