We’re a fan of these colorful, fairly-traded Fan Macramé earrings. Each earring is created with a unique color combination, so no two are the same. Fairly traded and created by the artisan cooperative Casa Hogar Comunitario from Chiapas, Mexico.

Everyday, our work is grounded in taking action against the injustice of poverty, supporting change makers in Guatemala, Mexico, and Colombia as they work to improve and alleviate health issues in their communities.

The impact of health promoter practitioners is immense and life changing, as they have the tools to respond to the needs of their communities. Living in remote regions, practitioners provide essential health care services to those that have no other access to care. #InternationalJusticeDay

Cool down and celebrate National Ice Cream month with a beautiful hand-crafted spoon by artisans Cucharas Ixchel de Petén (The Ixchel Spoon Makers of Petén) in Guatemala.

Don’t sweat it, the artisans use wood certified as sustainable, preserving local forests while doubling the income of the cooperative’s families. Perfect as a gift for any ice cream aficionado in your life!

Celebrating community and global action

For over two decades, Concern America has brought together a local community of global hearts to raise funds for communities as they build collective power and self-sufficiency through healthcare, clean water, education, and economic opportunities.
By walking in our own communities and neighborhoods, participating in an activity for our Walk Out of Poverty event, fundraising, donating, or even sharing with friends and family, your time and contribution changes lives and supports the health promoter practitioners, midwives, water system builders, and artisans who work every day to transform their communities.
