The Story of ThaiCraft

ThaiCraft began in 1975 as Hilltribe Sales at the International Church of Bangkok.  These volunteer-run events at International School Bangkok's former downtown campus operated until 1992. 

In August of that year the ThaiCraft Association became an independent development organisation, For the first year only, small start-up administration grants were received from Dutch (ICCO) and British (ODA/Oxfam) funding agencies.  By retaining a small share of sales revenue, ThaiCraft soon became and has remained a financially self-sufficient organisation.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and please continue to support fair trade producers.

Regards
Sabeena

Hello, Assalaam Alaikum, peace and blessings!

I'm Sabeena, a social entrepreneur, fair trade campaigner and educator.

So here I am for the 10th consecutive year participating in the Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind The Label.

This year the challenge commences 2nd March - 27th April 2022. 

Happy 20th Birthday Labour Behind The Labour team!

Much love
