Join us Saturday May 13th, 2017 to celebrate World Fair Trade Day at Global Village Gifts, Utah's Only Fair Trade Federation Member non-profit retail store, located at 69 East 100 North in Logan. From 10am to 6pm, we will have food, drink, henna, and a Mother’s Day Craft. This year’s theme is “Open Doors”. Fair Trade is always Opening Doors to impoverished artisans around the world, giving them opportunities to earn fair wages and grow their businesses.
Rene Orland Lopez-Ortiz is currently a senior at Mountain Crest High School. He is a quiet artistic force to be reckoned with. He enjoys painting with acrylics, watercolors, ink drawing, and even throwing pottery on the wheel. His favorite theme to address in his artwork is anything that makes him feel calm. Many times this includes architecture or landscapes. He wants his architecture art to radiate warmth from within, and his landscape paintings to feel like a cool summer breeze. When asked to describe himself, Rene prides himself on being calm, creative, kind and having a huge imagination.

We have invited local groups that empower women in our community, such as CAPSA and Sew n’ Sew. CAPSA does amazing work here in Cache Valley. They provide safe and confidential shelters, advocacy and support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. They also help reduce incidents of abuse through prevention education.
Sew’ n’ Sew is a wonderful group of women in Cache Valley who sew re-usable sanitary pads for girls and women in Uganda and locally. Every month girls in rural Africa have to miss school one week at a time because of their menstrual cycles. Sew’ n’ sew works with SEEEME, an organization which provides schools, clean water and other projects in Uganda, and sends reusable sanitary napkins to girls along with educating them how to use them and how to properly care for their bodies. They also teach women how to sew their own pads and help them to create a business for them in Uganda.
