WomenCraft is a community driven social enterprise that connects
talented rural East African artisans with regional and international
fair-trade markets. It consists of 380 artisans in the hills of Mafiga
Matatu, which is located between Rwanda, Tanzania, and Burundi.
WomenCraft's members create high-quality handcrafted products that preserve local traditions and incorporate environmentally-sustainable local materials including locally harvest grasses, raffia, banana fiber, and vibrant Tanzanian fabrics.
WomenCraft pays its members fair wages and uses its profits to provide services to its members, their families and their communities. Members also build business acumen and gain practical life skills so that they can eventually take ownership of the enterprise.
