River Stone Holy Family

The beautiful hand-carved River Stone Holy Family is made by skilled artisans in Haiti. In a country with very few economic resources, makers are often self-taught in simple crafts (such as stone carving) in order to support themselves. Makers perfect their skill over time and eventually can create larger, more elaborate stone sculptures such as this.

The nonprofit Comité Artisanal Haitien (CAH) was founded in 1973 to help rural craftspeople sell their wares in Port–au–Prince, to provide income and to help reduce the flow of migration from the countryside to the city. Though rural to urban migration continues, CAH helps artisans earn a living from their skills. The economic situation in Haiti is bleak, and the need for income generation is great. CAH craft sales often are the sole income source for artisans and their families.CAH markets and exports crafts made by Haitian artisans, cooperatives and craft groups, who depend on CAH to find a fair price for their handicrafts. CAH provides marketing and promotional expertise, training in literacy and business skills for artisans, and financial assistance in case of health emergencies. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from CAH since 1978.
