Buying Fair Trade is a great way to support grassroots efforts for change in the developing world. By buying Fair Trade you ensure that the people producing the goods you buy are paid a just wage for their labor. Join us for the Fair Trade Holiday Sale to learn more, support artisans and cooperatives, and to get beautiful products from around the world!

This money is then donated to two scholarship programs - one in Nicaragua and one in El Salvador. If you would like more information about these scholarships, please contact the VSLC.
