Our mission is to provide the dignity of work and self-sufficiency for rural African artisans, thereby advancing hope for future generations. Unemployment in rural Africa is as high as 70% with a severe lack of new job opportunities. We partner with 15 African artisan groups in Namibia, Ghana, South Africa and Zambia to design, create, and market innovative and unique high quality handmade products. Proceeds from products sales pay the artisans directly as well as contributing to community development projects in the region.
We work with rural groups located in Zambia, Namibia, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and South Africa. These highly skilled artisan groups design, create, and produce unique collectibles, mostly in the home ware and jewelry line. We estimate Bridge for Africa impacts 1600 individuals and their families, providing a living wage and the dignity of work.
