HAPI is about sustainable change and empowerment. We began with a community of fair trade artisans using their creativity to make a variety of products for the international gift market. Since our inception in 2007, the artisans are now branching out into their own businesses under the HAPI umbrella.

“It is an amazing thing they do here at HAPI by teaching sustainability. Nothing is a handout here. People don’t beg or ask for money.”  ~Pastor Melany Chalker

The Artisans are always looking for groups to purchase ‘card bundles’ of 50, 75 or 100 cards to sell at your location or use as your fundraising product. Other products and special orders also available.
