About the Foundation

Key Metrics (2013)

ECHOsi Foundation’s work is focused on helping develop and support a supply- value chain for small producers to have access in a marketplace so consumers can have a choice to purchase artisan or eco-friendly products to support a sustainable lifestyle. Empowering Communities with Hope and Opportunities through Sustainable Initiatives (ECHOsi) is the non-profit arm of the green retailer ECHOstore. The foundation’s programs handholds small producers, farmers and women micro-entrepreneurs. ECHOsi develops products at early stages of the supply chain, moving these products through enhancement and value-addition processes of packaging, introduction of new designs, product variant development, teaching communities of existing markets available to them, and strategically producing products for key niche and specialty markets.
