On World Refugee Day 2019, we Thai Tribal Crafts Fair Trade honored the strength of refugees around the world together with other fair trade partners and supporters at Sangdee Gallery, Chiang Mai. The main event was organized by WEAVE – Women’s Education for Advancement and Empowerment. WEAVE was founded in 1990, with the intent to empower indigenous women and support their needs and basic human rights. The organization has evolved over the years, especially in the context of the influx of refugees from Burma.
As the theme for World Refugee Day 2019 is #StepWithRefugees — we would like to invite you all to take big or small steps in solidarity with refugees from around the world, especially in your regions.
