Matt Boomie support fair trade to provide help for those who need it most. They want to see their artisan partners succeed and grow through fair trade, and are happy to work with small groups that show potential. One of Matr Boomie's smallest groups grew from 15 members to 100 in a three-year period; along with the growth in members came a 25% increase in income. Artisans no longer feel the need to keep children home to work and earn extra income for their families. More children are encouraged to stay in school longer, which is driving average literacy rates up. Artisans are also embracing education for themselves, with many adults enrolling in night classes. More girls are continuing their educations, strengthening female voices and status in the community. Artisan now enjoy benefits such as paid sick and holiday leave, comfortable and friendly work environments, and respectful and dignified trading relationships.
