Fair Trade Egypt, the first fair trade organization in Egypt, works to empower communities by providing disadvantaged artisans with support and marketing services to make their products available to consumers around the world. The organization works with artisans throughout Egypt to open both local and international markets for their handmade goods.
Fair Trade Egypt traces its roots back to the late 1980s, where a minimal investment helped launch a development project to work with artisans. That effort became Fair Trade Egypt, an organization that works to provide income for marginalized artisans, preserve Egypt’s cultural richness and the heritage of its crafts. A sampling of the goods produced includes clothing, linens, home décor, jewelry, leather, stationery, and toys. Despite some challenging conditions in its home country, Fair Trade Egypt has continued to grow over the years.
The Cairo-based organization works with more than 2,300 artisans in Egypt. While opening up markets for their artisans from marginalized communities is critical, Fair Trade Egypt also advocates and works for greater equality in work conditions, promotes education for youth, and strives for greater access to healthcare.
