Project Report | Mar 21, 2012
The real impact of a small idea

By Tom Benjamin | Board member

The Global Store is slow to catch on and we are looking for ways to increase its visibility and sales. The good news is that several of the groups we worked with over the years are making progress in starting their own businesses. One family used the lessons they learned from the women’s coop to open their own internet café. They have left the coop and now are earning enough money to take care of their family and create several jobs for others in their village. Several of the young women that grew up with the coop have found jobs in their community using the lessons they have learned. We are considering investing some of the funds in a solar lamp coop in Kenya that is providing lights to rural villages. The problem we are now facing is the violence in Mexico and other countries that is challenging our ability to provide hands on classes. A private school has developed a k -12 business curriculum for students. They have been very successful with wealthy students and they are proposing to form a partnership with FWOP to start a school for poor children. We hope to start this project in the next 12 months. One thing we are learning from this project is the impact goes way beyond just providing a market place for a few handicrafts. This project is helping individuals and communities to rethink how they can work together to insure a future without poverty.
