We are a community of impassioned women and men working to design and produce beautiful pieces that:
Are Good, and
And in the process we are growing a great little company, called 2nd Story Goods, filled with life-giving jobs, creativity, personal discipline, loads of fun and imagination!
Artisans are paid a living wage (approximately 3-4 times the minimum wage for Haiti) for the time they spend making goods, upfront, by the piece.
We live here in the city where we are working. We are a part of this community. All our goods are made in Haiti and most are made in Jubilee - a small neighborhood by the sea on the outskirts of Gonaives.
We operate as a subsidiary of "Much Ministries" - Much is a registered 501c3 non profit registered in the state of Georgia. Purchases are not tax deductable, ( of course! ) but donations made toward this work are.
