Description and Impact
Our organization empowers women's artisan cooperatives, providing skills-building workshops and access to the market through our Fair Trade Store in town, thereby allowing women to earn a reliable income. Our Sustainable Tourism Program works to connect women, families and the rural poor with the economic opportunities that tourism brings.
We are looking for an individual who is passionate and has extensive experience in designing knitwear or woven goods. The goal of this opportunity is to improve the design and diversify types of products made by the cooperatives in order to increase the sales made by in store purchases. The work will involve sketching by hand, pattern development, and researching the current trends in colors and shapes.
Dates are flexible. Experteers typically come for 2-4 weeks, but longer positions are available depending on the project.
Some of the desired results are an increased foot traffic in the store, increased sales of products and tours, an increase in customer engagement
