Why this product matters

Saidpur Enterprises employs women artisans who make a variety of jute products. Some have husbands who are underemployed; others are widowed. The organization provides literacy classes, and training on nutrition, women’s legal rights, educational awareness and finance. Following the 1971 war that established Bangladesh, Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) began a program to help mothers of malnourished children coming to its nutrition centre. This temporary employment program became Action Bag Handicrafts (a subsidiary of Saidpur Enterprises), and now supports artisans selling for the fair trade export market.
