Do Good Shop founder Jenni has the pleasure of meeting Zellipah and her family when she was one of the keynote speakers at the annual Fair Trade Federation Conference. Miss Zellipah shared that she went from being a young woman vulnerable to poverty and exploitation, to an artisan herself, and eventually to the founder and owner of her own fair trade company!
Zellipah, began Gitzell FairTrade and showcased the artwork at both craft fairs and festivals. Zellipah continued working with artisans from several African countries and supporting over 220 families. The increasing sales at the craft fairs and festivals eventually led her to begin selling wholesale to US shops.
