Partnering with Fairkind made magic happen. We were able to complete a dream, by giving our clients not only a beautiful product in hand but also a sense of changing the world. Fairkind jumped through hoops, paved new paths and was not afraid to get their hands dirty in the process. Their understanding of market changes, consumer demands and artisans’ needs allowed our customers to feel a personal connection with the impact of our project. If you’re looking for an opportunity to connect your customers to products and increase the sense of community for your business, this is the direction to go, hands down.
Working with Fairkind gave our employees and customers a cause to rally behind. We had the chance to collaborate and promote the work of their Ugandan artisans, and found that it did more for our employees to feel proud of where they work than any resources we could throw into typical employee perks. It was also a tangible way to communicate the “why” behind Jane.com to our customers.
Working with the artisan women has helped Rain International find its true vision for helping to change the world. Our distributors love the jewelry the artisans make, and always ask how they can get involved. Being able to experience Uganda this year, and meeting the artisans face to face was such an incredible experience for us! The women are such amazing people, both individually, and collectively. They really have a desire to better their family circumstances, and are motivated to work hard in order to achieve that. It has been such an honor and blessing to work with Fairkind!
Thank you so very much for arranging the trip — we had a wonderful time visiting the villages. The work and craftsmanship is second to none, such a neat process and lovely people!
