"The Blessing Basket Project is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that believes the rural poor in developing countries are quite capable of pulling themselves out of poverty. We use a unique financial model which allows artisans to earn significantly higher than fair trade wages for their products for a given period of time. The artisan is free to steward that money however they wish. Most often they use the capital to create multiple small businesses. Those entrepreneurial endeavors result in several independent streams of income creating sustainable financial independence from our organization."
"Rupununi Learners is a partnership of a US 501(c)3 and a nonprofit corporation owned by indigenous villagers in Yupukari, Guyana. Together they collaborate to improve the quality of life in Yupukari via sustainable social enterprise. Starting in 2005 with a few visitors, today Yupukari hosts a US-accredited Study Abroad semester, a gap program, undergraduate internships and researchers-in-residence, in addition to traditional ecotourists. This enterprise sustains a public library, ongoing wildlife research and indigenous knowledge preservation, while generating village-based jobs, feeder enterprises, and an exponential increase in the number of elementary students able to qualify for high school entrance."
