the ten thousand villiages logo represents visually the organization's mission. the continuous line forming the buildings reminds us we are all linked as we live on this earth. the logo's cultural architecture represents homes of people with whom we work in many cultures and places. lit windows and doors speak of human beings sheltered in there- people much like ourselves in many ways. the warm red color and hand-crafted look of the logo represent the materials and methods used to make the items marketed by ten thousand villages.
