Kelly Weinberger founded WorldFinds in 2000 after traveling around the world with her husband David. While in Asia, Kelly was struck by the talented artisans and concerned for their lack of income when tourism faded, and vowed to do something about it when she returned to the States. The remainder of the trip was spent learning about the plight of artisans and fair trade, and culminated in an all-important visit to Traid Aid, a fair trade company, in New Zealand.
Back in the States Kelly began to test products she had purchased and learned the ins and outs of importing while David got his MBA. WorldFinds soon became a member of the Fair Trade Federation where Kelly now serves on the Bord of Directors.
WorldFinds created their Girl's Education Fund to help provide scholarships to the most marginalized families in our artisan's communities in India. A portion of every WorldFinds purchase contributes to the fund. Last year alone, an increase in orders allowed our artisan groups to send three times as many girls to school, and we are hoping to increase this even more before the end of the year.
