Another great source for their puppets is Little Green Beans which has more fair trade items along those lines, like the cutest stick horse you’ve ever seen.

A good friend of mine from Kenya runs a similar mission: http://www.beberavi.com. She employs women from her home town to knit gorgeous baby clothes (she’s a former fashion model and her creations are amazing). Most of the women are widows to AIDS and this a way for them to earn a living. They are provided with a safe place to knit where they can also watch their children. And benefits also go to my friend’s orphanage in the same town, http://www.chegeorphans.com. So your purchase not only benefits women in Kenya but also improves the lives of these orphans.
