  • 💫 Travel update 💫

Michelia, Trade Aid's Development Manager is currently catching up with old friends and visiting artisans working with UPAVIM in Guatemala 🙌🏼 📷: Michelia and Lily. In 2016 Michelia interviewed Lily and she told us her very personal experience of how she had grown and changed through working with UPAVIM. (You can view this here 👇🏼 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnYwM2R-FpI)

Michelia said it was wonderful to catch up with her again in 2019 and to find out that she is now the artisan representative whose role is to advocate for change to improve the artisans working experience. 
UPAVIM is a fully female artisan collective who through profits from their craft work are able to fund early childhood and primary education in their community. Check out our range of products from UPAVIM online or in-store.
