The world is one village, everyone interconnected through our economies, our environments, and our humanity! One Village Gifts understands this connection and empowers artisans worldwide while developing the sense of a global village--a responsibility of helping others, and lending a hand to ones neighbours. One Village Gifts offers beautifully handcrafted products created in India, Africa, the Amazon, and Nepal. These are fairly traded and environmentally responsible and sustainable products of exquisite quality!
Make One Village Gifts your one stop for socially conscious, unique, and stunning girlfriend gifts. Discover eco-friendly jewellery, handbags, and fair trade chocolate and coffee while knowing you are helping to provide an artisan an opportunity to make a healthy living in a poorer region of the world. Many of the artisans aided by One Village Gifts are women. These women are the local housewives of Nairobi who require the safety of a personal income if tragedy befalls their husbands; abused and discarded wives in India who have turned to prostitution for survival; displaced indigenous peoples of the Amazonian rainforests; the ravaged women of Rwanda; and the struggling poor of Nepal.
In the Amazon One Village Gifts has partnered with Rainforest Native supporting the creative work of Indigenous peoples. Jewellery is handcrafted with the ecology and sustainability of the rainforest in mind. You have heard about the wonderful health benefits of the Acai berry--an amazing Amazonian rainforest plant--but their esthetically pleasing appearance also makes them a fabulous material for embellishment! One Village Gifts carries eye-catching Acai berry bracelets in varying colours. These are made of natural seeds from the rainforests of Brazil and are sustainable, earth-friendly and absolutely show stopping for wearing on the beach this summer.
One Village Gifts is so much more than a store! It is about being socially responsible, about supporting and empowering primarily women suffering from poor circumstance, and about creating a global village of care and concern! It is about humanity! One Village Gifts allows you the opportunity to support this cause through the purchase of items but also through hosting Home Parties and becoming a One Village Gifts Consultant. From handbags to jewellery and chocolate One Village Gifts is the perfect place to shop for your girlfriends while helping girlfriends all over the world!
