Ten Thousand Villages is a pioneer of the fair trade movement. It is a non profit that began in the 1940’s and has grown into a network of stores throughout the United States. They work to provide economic opportunities for artisans in development countries which in turn alleviate poverty and hardship. These chimes have been handcrafted by artisans in the Philippines, represented by a Community Crafts Association of the Philippines called the CCAP, whose mission is “to improve the quality of life of handicraft producers through sustainable development.” They reach out to marginalized artisans and focus on fair trade principles such as child protection, cultural sensitivity, environmental sustainability, and gender equality.
