Mad Imports and Fair Trade

Mad Imports is a Fair Trade company that offers eclectic accesorries handmade in Madagascar and Kenya. Sales are reinvested in education, community, and economic developmental projects. They fund an orphanage, a children's education project, and business and product development workshops. The sales provide jobs and help grow small businesses in Madagascar and Kenya. Africa is an art loving country and millions of people are involved in the handicrafts industry at some level. This company creates the opportunity for individuals and families to earn fair compensation for their creations and participate in international trade. This work allows women to farm and care for children while earning income from home. It promotes environmental conservation because it makes use of renewable materials and creates jobs along the supply chain for the rural poor.
