A Scottsdale, Arizona non-profit organization - The Kearney Alliance is dedicated to helping developing company entrepreneurs sell their goods as a means of alleviating poverty.

Imports of Bali - the retail arm of the philanthropic organization is one of that areas most well-known retailers the subject of TV and print media coverage, local Channel 3's Good Morning Arizona and Channel 15's Sonoran Living - as well as articles in The Arizona Republic and Yes Style. All featured the store's carefully selected range of stunning products and highlighted its philanthropic goals.

Aid Through Trade

"Our mission of 'Aid through Trade' is advanced with every product customers buy at Imports of Bali," said Terry Koch, executive director of the Kearny Alliance. "Purchases directly support skills development and job creation among poor, small-scale producers in Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos."

One Imports of Bali customer, J’Lein Leise, said: "I'm totally impressed with the quality craftsmanship of the products here – especially the innovative sterling silver jewelry and silk scarves. Plus, I like that my purchase helps to support poor people."

Koch said: "The family-based enterprises we work with create stunning handcrafted works of art – jewelry, home décor and fashion accessories – but lack direct access to international markets."

"We fill that need. In doing so, we create lasting jobs which fosters a strong sense of pride in producers' work, their ability to provide basic necessities for their families, and education for their children."

The Kearny Alliance is a Scottsdale, Arizona based nonprofit organization. Its first retail outlet for small-scale Asian artisans, Imports of Bali, is in Scottsdale, Arizona at 14611 North Scottsdale Road.

Key programs of the Kearny Alliance include the Export Service Centre with offices in Denpasar, Indonesia. The Centre assists low-income producers throughout Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos to sell products to buyers worldwide. Imports of Bali is the nonprofit retail arm of the Kearny Alliance. The Imports of Bali retail store in Scottsdale, Arizona, offers a direct sales outlet for small-scale producers in developing countries.
