DescriptionThe Y.Development Cooperation Company Limited, is known as YC, was set up within the YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association) in order to market products internationally YC chooses products which will have an international appeal and helps design the products for this particular market. YC ensures that all products exported are high quality. Export markets are encouraged only as a supplement to local markets;Profits from exporting go into the YMCA's rural development program and shared among the producers themselves in a way that will benefit their community. Since 1982, The YMCA of Chiangmai has been exporting handicrafts to alternative trade organizations (ATO's) around the world. The aim is to help the poor villagers in Northern Thailand by giving them a way to earn a living. A two pronged method is used to accomplish this. First, villagers are taught by NGO's and GO's to made and market products, some of these villagers are already highly skilled. Second, once the villagers become proficient at the skill, the YMCA helps market the product locally and internationally.
