Watauk, a new way of shopping

ILCO has been promoting the production of artisan handicrafts in our communities of faith with the goal of opening new commercial spaces in which marginalized families can improve their quality of life.

In the indigenous language of Bribri, Watauk means trading like brothers and sisters and under this name, promoting social and economic development for many families, bringing the opportunity to increase their income.

This market is not only meant to serve people locally, but will also sell products to our sister churches and Fair Trade Stores in the United States, Sweden, and Germany.

The opening of these markets will not only benefit the families involved, but also works to protect the environment. This is a fundamental aspect of these projects, focusing on the issues of recycling and reusing materials to create new products.

This marketing assists both the small, local producers and the greater communities, in which different groups receive benefits like:

    Work opportunities for youth, women, and the elderly from whom we buy products like handmade artisan crafts and agricultural products like soaps and ointments.

    Small producers that receive a better prices for their production .

If you wish to contribute to a better environment, to work with excluded sectors of society, to help the social and economic development of men and women, you can visit us and we will gladly give you more details about our new Fair Trade Market: Watauk.
