      On Grain of Rice Project

      The Grain of Rice Academy is a boarding and day school for children from preschool through grade 8. Their mission is to make high quality education accessible to all children and to empower their students to become problem solvers and leaders in the community.

      The Grain of Rice Artisan Shop employs jewelry, basket, brass and sewing artisans and provides a steady and fair living wage. In addition to making one-of-a-kind handcrafted products, the artisans learn essential skills to improve their standard of living — these include budgeting, savings, goal setting, resume writing, leadership, parenting and healthy living.


      As a nonprofit artisan marketplace committed to social and environmental transparency, Joffa bridges the gap between maker and buyer and prioritizes the person behind every product. Our mission is to make it easier to do what you’re already doing — making socially conscious shopping decisions while finding quality items you actually want to buy.
