DescriptionGolden Palm Crafts exports handmade wooden objects to fair trade organizations throughout the world. Golden Palm’s principal objective is to create job options for people in the rural areas of Sri Lanka, where employment opportunities are rare. With its main office in Colombo, Golden Palm’s woodworking and painting workshops are found in a number of rural villages. Most artisans are the sole income earners for their families. Artisan pay is above minimum wage; they also receive insurance, workers’ compensation, pension contributions and assistance with school fees. Fair wages enable families to improve their standard of living. Profits from the business are reinvested in new machinery, tools, and training, to improve working conditions and to create more jobs.
