Nica Life is a Fair Trade Federation Member!
We have big news! We are proud to announce that we have been accepted into the Fair Trade Federation!! We are deeply committed to the fair trade movement and are so proud that our policies and programs have been vetted and were found to meet the stringent requirements of the FTF. We believe that this membership inspires trust between us, our community and you, our supporters!
Jerry and I started Nica Life because we wanted to create a company that would have a positive impact for all it’s stake holders, especially our employees and communities. Our mission has always been to create fair trade jobs and to invest in development and empowerment programs. We are so proud of the entire management team, they worked so hard to create an open and empowering culture, to develop inspiring education & development programs, and to document all this work for the Fair Trade Federation application.
One of the nine fair trade principles is to “Develop Transparent & Accountable Relationships.” This has always been a top priority for us. That led to us including the artisan’s signature on all Nica Life Jewelry. We want to be accountable to our supporters, we want you to know who you are supporting, and we want you to truly know the team. We know it is a difficult task in global economy with complicated supply chains to demand this transparency. We thank you for your commitment to asking the questions “Who made this, and how did it impact her/his life?” We are so grateful to have met this milestones and we couldn’t have done it without you!
