Craft Resource Center

We want
to develop economic self sufficiency
for the vulnerable sections of the society
through traditional skills if any, 
or through imparting training
in appropriate skills and technology,
to help them work with dignity
and with full awareness of their legal
and human rights
which gives them
the basics of what is "Fair",
to assist them to lead an unexploited life
financially independent,
fulfilling all moral, social and
individual responsibilities
to their own selves
as well as to the community
that they belong to.
We want life to be
a beautiful place
for everybody.

Mission statement, Craft Resource Center. A fair trade organization, Kolkata, India.
