The Blessing Basket Project® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that believes the rural poor in developing countries are quite capable of pulling themselves out of poverty. The Blessing Basket Project pays its artisans a Prosperity Wage®, which is significantly beyond fair trade, in fact, more than anyone else in the world. The mission of The Blessing Basket Project is achieved when the artisan uses their Prosperity Wages to graduate from the program into a life of sustainable financial independence. The Blessing Basket Project serves in Ghana, Uganda, Indonesia, Madagascar, Bangladesh, Kenya and Papua New Guinea. The Blessing Basket Project is an awardee of the 2016 UNAOC Intercultural Innovation Award.
