THE MAKERS

Uganda Crafts is the oldest and largest craft shop in Uganda. The organization brings a sustainable and fair income to their artisans, most of whom are either people with disabilities, widowed, or others often excluded from the global economy. They market the crafts for artisans and provide training in quality control, design and marketing. The organization also owns a retail store that provides employment for people with physical disabilities. In addition to training, employees receive health benefits, emergency loans and transportation. Uganda Crafts employs approximately 300 artisans in five workshops or cooperatives, 85 percent of them women. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Uganda Crafts since 1995.
