An Entrepreneurs Story

Behind the scenes of the Global story of Change

Dave & Tasha

Dave is CEO and co-founder with his wife Tasha, of Village Artisan.They are lovers of Jesus, adventure, and those who have never heard of Him. This passion took them to India, embedded them in a community, and birthed Village Artisan. By His grace, Village Artisan is a growing fair trade company that empowers women, brings dignified work to men and raises families out of the cycle of poverty.

They currently have 2 sites and over 150 employees. As it keeps growing he sees his role as an opportunity creator for those who are starting out. With this in mind, they have started the Village Artisan network. This is the network of folks who are building on the social enterprise model they created to enter new needy communities in North India. Teaching, training and deploying people to new locations, sometimes within the Village Artisan network and sometimes outside, is a way to multiply the impact of the model they began.

What does it take to enable Fair Trade?

Chicken Farming – Satara

Chicken Farming – Satara

Chicken Farming – Satara

Two years ago, we were able to connect with a retired business leader who had built up successful Chicken Farm and Processing Plant. He then partnered with Ace to help an entrepreneur in western India start a Chicken farm. They did three batches of 5000 chickens, hiring 3 full time and about 5 part time people. Unfortunately a problem with flies in the Monsoon season was not properly resolved and the local council ordered it closed down. We are continuing to work with the entrepreneur as he considers options to start a new business or build up his existing goat farm. Meanwhile the local council working with a water conservation NGO is renting out the vacant facility.
