Fair Trade Art Shop
The Project Esperanza Art Shop of Muñoz opened in June 2011 to sell artwork made by local artists to passing tourists and the volunteer community, as well as to fundraise and create awareness for Project Esperanza. 60% of our sales go directly to the artists, 12% go to the local store worker and manager, and the rest goes towards Project Esperanza program support.
We continue to seek out relationships with the expat community and let them know about the shop. Project Esperanza volunteers have been our largest customers so far. In addition, we now have the online Project Esperanza art shop. So you can make a purchase from across the globe! Take a look. Everything is handmade by an artist who truly needs the work!
