Welcome to Shared Trade!
One of our partners, MamAfrica works in the heart of the Congo with women survivors of violence. Many of these women have experienced great hardship, displacement, and loss of loved ones due to the violence and unrest in Congo. MamAfrica provides steady employment and a space for women to experience community and heal. You can shop for Mamafrica products here.
We wanted to share a story from one of their artisans Mama Celine.
Your purchases this holiday season make an impact in the lives of women artisans around the world. One of our partners, Anchal Project, shared the following story from one of their artisans, Nazia. Anchal Project is a nonprofit social enterprise that addresses the exploitation in India using design thinking to create employment, opportunities, services, and products that support empowerment.
"We work really hard to make stuff that people like. When people buy our products it means that we can clothe, feed & educate our children." - Nazia
