600 WOMEN ARTISANS
FROM TANZANIA AND BURUNDI
WomenCraft is a Fair Trade certified social enterprise in Ngara in the remote northeast of Tanzania. Our mission is to increase economic opportunity in the post-conflict, tri-border area of Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania by bringing rural women together, facilitating their growth and connecting their artistry to the global marketplace. Through WomenCraft, over 600 artisans advance themselves, raise stronger families, stimulate their communities and inspire the world around them.
Since its founding in 2007, with the aim of building cohesion between refugees and their hosting communities, WomenCraft has always followed a peace-centered approach, connecting women with diverse backgrounds through the enterprise, working together as one business, with one common goal. These relationships have reduced tensions between former refugees and refugee-hosting communities and have built unity in a region marred by conflict.
