Concern America logo

Concern America is an international development and refugee aid organization that provides long-term, community-based development and support to economically impoverished communities throughout the world since 1972.

Concern America trains community members in health, education, water construction, and income-generation, so that the villagers themselves become the health care providers, educators, well-diggers, cooperative members, etc.

In terms of income generation, Concern America supports cooperatives in Bangladesh, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico by purchasing their beautiful, handcrafted art pieces at fair trade prices, set by those who make them. Concern America then makes these items available through craft sales hosted in homes, churches, businesses, schools, civic events, and now online.

Funds generated by these sales are used to support the Concern America field projects in these same countries, in addition to the benefits to the artisans.

Visit the Concern America marketplace for more information and/or to purchase crafts.
