Challenge

New hostilities aimed at Armenian communities inside the border are ongoing. Women and children are evacuated, but men and boys have stayed behind to protect their homes and lands. HDIF as a Fair Trade organization creates jobs for women through handicrats. We combine these to pillars of activity to produce winterization items and supply them to bordering villages. SDGs addressed: #1 No Poverty #2 Zero Hunger #3 Good Health and Well Being #5 Gender Equality #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth.

Solution

Using the SDG goals and Fair Trade principles in rural Armenia the project will: - create economic opportunities - contribute to a better diet for families through more disposable income - open opportunities for a higher life quality for families - contribute to great gender equality in economic activities - provide a fair wage and decent working conditions - prevent child labour practices, while at the same time providing assistance to persons at risk along the border.

Long-Term Impact

Long terms impacts of the project will be: - stable incomes for an increasing number of women - better health in families due to better dietary habits - increased participation in economic decisions for women in their families and in their communities - better skills for business management through experience - clean and safe working environment through better knowledge and awareness. In addition, the feeling of solidarity, of community that the producing women feel is of significant importance.
