How your purchase can make a difference

Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland) is one of the poorest countries in the world. Over 40% of its population live on less than US$ 1.25 per day. Because of unfavourable climate conditions and low agricultural productivity, poverty is widespread.

Fair-trade benefits to communities

Your purchase will help support Gone Rural’s boMake (translation: “women”), a dedicated not-for-profit organisation that supports communities in which their female artisans live.

boMake was founded by Gone Rural in 2006 and focuses on training, health and education, as well as women’s empowerment.
