Fair Trade Stores

Fair Trade Stores

Many Christian institutions fund and encourage development projects to raise the economic level of refugees and other poor Palestinians.  In addition, these development projects help to keep the culture alive.  Especially when the men cannot find work or are denied permits to enter Israel, the women and children become the only sources of income.  The goods the women (and men) produce are often far superior to the manufactured items available in the markets.  Fair trade stores provide an outlet for these goods.  They give a fair price to the craftsperson and they only sell only high quality crafts in their stores.  In the United States, SERRV shops are the equivalent.
