Made51 is a global initiative that aims to support refugee artisans by helping them develop their skills and connect with global markets to sell their handmade products. The initiative is a collaboration between the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
It works by identifying talented refugee artisans, providing them with training and resources to refine their craft, and connecting them with global markets to sell their products. This helps to provide these artisans with a sustainable income and empowers them to support themselves and their families.
Its products range from jewellery to home decor to clothing and accessories, and can be purchased through the initiative’s online marketplace or through partner retailers. By buying MADE51 products, customers can support refugee artisans and help them build a better future for themselves and their communities.
