Artisan Discovery Foundation

Chester, New York

About this nonprofit organization
Formed as a charitable organization meant to identify indigenous artisans from impoverished and rural communities in the US and abroad. By assisting people to further develop existing or new artisan craft, they will be able to pave eventual pathways out of poverty by selling their goods through "fair trade" for-profit organizations. The foundation carefully researches, identifies and helps to fund community development projects in the selected areas, which will help sustain impoverished people and their communities.
