As a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and a founding member of Fair Trade Forum India, TARA Projects (Trade Alternative Reform Action) are a fantastic business that we’re proud to work with. TARA began in the early 1970’s and they have been dedicated to creating opportunities for economically disadvantaged, home-based artisans in Delhi ever since. Over the years the project has extended its work into the adjoining states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan.
The project provides services to enable the production and marketing of handicrafts following Fair Trade principles, as well as providing the education and support to empower grassroots artisans. The heart of their work is their dedication to eradicating poverty, by fighting against exploitation and illiteracy amongst their producers and their communities. They also contribute towards the funding of local schools and employ and train women as part of their drive to support marginalised groups.
