Meet the artisans:
When she was only 11, Heena's father passed away, leaving her mother, Heena, and her 3 younger siblings to support themselves. Heena left school and learned to embroider from her mother. They got sporadic work from local contractors - but sometimes they got paid and sometimes they didn't. A neighbor let them know about a new self-help group in their area, started with support from Tara Projects, a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.Heena is now 20, and has been working with them for two years. The workshop is nice, she is paid a living wage, and has clean water, medical insurance, and a savings plan. She is also able to save money for her marriage.
