This month’s Houston NetSquared brings more geekery and social issues as Net2 pal Kevin Lacobie chats with our group about Fair Trade. Kevin is on the board for Ten Thousand Villages – a local gift shop that sells beautiful handcrafted items created by artisans from over 30 nations worldwide.
We talk lots about sustainability and Fair Trade is a great way to provide groups in developing nations with a consistent livelihood to send their children to school, pay medical bills and everyday expenses. Economic sustainability is a good thing and NGOs like Ten Thousand Villages is a great start to providing good, hard working people with a living wage and a slice of hope for the families’ future.
We’ve got a great RSVP list going this month – hope to see you there!
