Global Sistergoods

The community partner this Capstone will be working with is Global Sistergoods. They are a Portland business that imports fairly traded crafts from women's collectives around the world. Global Sistergoods provides a living wage to economically disadvantaged women in fragile economies by supporting entrepreneurship, self-reliance and micro enterprise development through fair trade.

Global Sistergoods partner with international non-government organizations who provide resources to women, governmental trade associations who support women's economic empowerment, women's cooperatives/collectives, and individual women artisans. Capstone students will collaboratively decide on a project, in self-selected groups, focusing on the needs of Global Sistergoods. Project possibilities will be decided in class.
