Welcome to AfriCraft! We are a fair-trade organization on a mission to promote employment and income generation for poor communities through waste collection and recycling. AfriCraft started in 2004 with the vision of empowering youth groups in developing skills to transform livelihoods, support a sustainable future and circular economy by turning trash into treasure. Our story began in a home-based workshop with two employees but today, it stretches across Tanzania where we work with over 200 artisans to bring value to the trash and to give it a second life. Explore our diverse range of products and meet our producers who design and manufacture unique products.
