AFSC volunteer Judith Rosenberg and AFSC Austin Program Coordinator Josefina Castillo received a recognition from Ten Thousand Villages (one of the invited fair trade cooperatives that participate in our annual Women & Fair Trade Sale) during an International Women’s Day celebration in their premises.
Judith and Josefina were awarded with a beautiful hand-made bronze pendant symbolizing the eucalyptus tree for their humanitarian service to the community.
“A very appealing feature of the CFO philosophy is that they never impose an agenda on the workers, but instead respond to needs that workers articulate. They say ‘Always go to the workers with empty hands’—equivalent to our idiom of an open mind.” - Judith Rosenberg, Co-founder of Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera
