AHA Bolivia is a fair trade, ethical manufacturing company in Bolivia working with over 300 artisans to hand craft knitwear, handbags, baby clothes, toys, and more.
Mission: AHA Bolivia believes garment and accessories manufacturing can be done ethically. We work with designers, retailers and wholesalers to create designer pieces in natural fibers and recyclable materials. We respect and utilize handmade manufacturing techniques that have taken
generations to perfect. We value our workers and artisans and treat them with dignity and fairness. We are proud members of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
This combined internship, learning workshop, and cultural experience program is designed to introduce students to socially responsible business practices, international business, and environmental respectfulness in business. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how
business works in a developing nation, and how it relates to export markets such as the US and Canada. Participants will engage in hands on learning and will produce a measurable intern project by the end of the program.
