African style with an African Impact!
Afrikapu is Impact Obsessed. We rigorously measure and evaluate every aspect of our work to create impact for our artisanentrepreneurs.
At Afrikapu, we understand that having a community impact means empowering people to improve their lives and uplift their community in the process. We approach this challenge, first and foremost, by having an understanding of the realities in the community where we work.
We engage our artisans, their families, community leaders, and other community members in the community to assess their challenges, and in doing so, start to formulate a plan for how to best tackle the obstacles standing in the way of their success
Afrikapu helps to cultivate the artisans’ skill while ensuring a fair living wage by providing them the means to turn their resourcefulness and creativity into a viable livelihood, whereby they can use their talents to create beautiful accessories from locally sourced, ethical materials with a unique aesthetic and an inspiring story.
Our commitment to our artisans and their greater community is borne out through our social contract with the marginalized groups. We enable them by providing or assisting with:
- Fair living wages
- Flexible, work-from-home environment
- Reliable, consistent income
- Skills training/Educational workshops
- Savings matching and interest-free loan programs
The assistance we provide to our artisans empowers them to be independent women, to look after their children and ensure they have access to education, nutritious food, and healthcare, to be a voice in their community for environmental awareness, and to have meaningful work opportunities where they can be proud of their creations and the means provided by their work.
WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
