In 1986, Noahs Ark was established to provide integrity, welfare and better living conditions for very poor artisans in the villages of Moradabad, India. In addition to fair wages and business support, the organization provides an opportunity to acquire life insurance, medical care and a facility for the education of their children. Noahs Ark is bringing opportunities to hundreds of the artisans in this community by selling products outside of India to organizations that believe in Fair Trade (paying a fair and living wage to workers while building into the community). There are 28 small artisan groups whose lives have been significantly impacted by improved living conditions and increased market opportunities for their craft. There is also a wonderful ripple affect in their communities as their improved wages get invested in other community businesses. A portion of the profits are allocated for building a school to provide free education for children who have been working in the fields of Moradabad. These children then will grow up with the skills to provide for themselves. Noahs Ark provides an opportunity for struggling families to make a living, to contribute to their communities, and to break the cycle of poverty.
