The Pure Art Foundation is a registered Canadian charity working to empower communities stricken by poverty to develop sustainably through health, shelter, education, skill development and entrepreneurship programs.

We primarily work with families in the Manantay slums of Pucallpa, a Peruvian Amazon town, that are living without access to clean water, housing, the means to an education & local first-line health care. We believe that health, shelter & education are the pillars of a strong community. 

The Art of Shopping with a Purpose™ encompasses a full circle of fundamental principles that are the core of our mission: To increase awareness of Fair Trade through education and supporting artisans worldwide. Profits from the sales at the Pure Art Boutique cover the operating costs of the Foundation, allowing 100% of donations to flow directly to our sustainability programs in Peru & Tanzania.
