At Indego Africa, we are all about empowering and uplifting artisan women in Africa through employment opportunities and education. Our mission? To help artisans lift themselves and their families out of poverty and become empowered businesswomen.
We work with 25 groups of more than 1,000 women in Rwanda and Ghana, combining traditional techniques, local materials and amazing artisanal skill. We provide our partners with fair, consistent income for their artistry which, in turn, enables them to care for themselves and their families.
We invest all of our profits from product sales, with grants and donations, into education programs for the artisans who handcraft our products. Our courses range from leadership and entrepreneurship to financial and business management to skills-based vocational training & more.
We believe that educating women is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. Through our education programs, our partners develop the knowledge and skills they need to grow their own enterprises, become entrepreneurs, and uplift entire communities—creating employment opportunities for others and setting new standards for what women can achieve.
