Comparte (“to share” in Spanish) works to improve the standard of living for Chile’s disadvantaged craftspeople, exporting products from 430 workshops representing some 2,200 artisans. In addition to conducting regional workshops, Comparte provides training, organizational assistance, and marketing and design services to these groups. They also help feature their crafts in markets and commercial craft stores in the region. Comparte sees a vital link between artisans, their stories and skills, and the individuals who buy and appreciate their work. The organization believes in the power of Fair Trade principles to create a better world.
