Indego Africa is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering artisan women in Africa through employment opportunities and education. Their mission? To help artisans lift themselves and their families out of poverty and become empowered businesswomen.
Indego Africa partners with more than 1,100 women in Rwanda and Ghana to sell products that are designed in New York City and handmade in Africa— combining traditional techniques, local materials, and amazing artisanal skill.
They provide their partners with access to the global market, and fair, consistent income for their artistry. They invest all of their profits from sales, coupled with grants and donations, into business education and vocational training programs for the artisans who handcraft their products and the youth in those communities.
