The Ten Thousand Villages mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships, in the hope that one day all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect, and be able to live a life of quality.
Ten Thousand Villages is an independent nonprofit, charitable organization. All sales revenue generated by Ten Thousand Villages and any surplus earned by operations is retained within Ten Thousand Villages. Surpluses are used to increase purchases from artisans and to finance the growth of Ten Thousand Villages retail network.
