Welcome to AVI's Ethical Products Shop!

Action Village India’s Ethical Code

 

100% Fair prices for artisans, 100% Profit for rural development


All our products are hand-made by artisans in India, many of whose craft under threat. Most of our pieces are produced through  our partner’s Ekta Parishad’s Gandhian-based ‘Gram Swaraj’ or ‘village economy programme’, which ensures our weavers and producers a fair wage for their products. Ekta Parishad - translated as Unity Movement -  is a people’s movement consisting of 11,000 community based organisations, which is dedicated to building community-based governance, local self-reliance and responsible government action.

Ekta Parishad’s aim is to see India’s poorest people - including tribals, dalits and nomadic communities, gain control over their livelihood resources, especially land, water and forest. 100% of profits from the sale of these products go to Action Village India’s development projects with our partners in Rural India. All products are traceable to their origin.
