Fair Trade Artisans: Indonesia: Mitra Bali Foundation A non-governmental, non-profit organization, the Mitra Bali Foundation acts as a market and export facilitator for small craft producers. These small producers represent the diverse Balinese culture that attracts tourism to the area, but because they live in more remote areas and work on a small scale, haven't benefited by the economic influx of the tourism industry. To counter the marginalization of these producers, Mitra Bali works with around 36 producer groups employing over 800 men and women to help them in marketing their products and improve their working conditions. In addition to marketing assistance, Mitra Bali also has a Design Center where producers can access resources, work with designers, and get regular training on new trends, technical aspects of production and health and safety, as well as the use of environmentally sustainable resources within the production process. As a fair trade organization, Mitra Bali's work with artisans is based on principles of benefit, equity and respect.
