AfriCraft is a fairtrade company and social enterprise focused on recycled and natural handcrafts. We are based mainly in Tanzania, Dar-es-Salaam where we train, build the capacity of youth and create awareness on environmental issues. Based on fair trade principles, we are telling the stories of Tanzanian communities and nature reserves by bringing creative and unique designed local products to a global market. By buying our products, you will be supporting a fairer, greener and more sustainable world!
TRADE NOT AID: We often work with women groups and disabled communities to provide them with opportunities for income, independence and empowerment as a means to achieve a better life.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: We have a range of products from office-wear to kitchenware that is produced using 100% recycled material. Through our social projects in Coco Beach, we up-cycle trash collected in the ocean and turn them into useful handicrafts and everyday items. At AfriCraft, we call this trash-treasure.
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT: In Tanzania, we are blessed with an abundant youth population. We agree that young people are the future and this is why we focus greatly on developing passions and skills in order to enable young people to access an income through sustainable activities. In order to achieve this, we empower vulnerable youth by training them in creating crafts from upcycled items.
