About this Maker
Indego Africa is a nonprofit social enterprise and lifestyle brand that supports artisans in Rwanda through economic empowerment and education. Indego Africa works to break intergenerational cycles of poverty by providing predominantly female artisans with the tools and support to reclaim their own futures, flourish as independent businesspeople and drive development in their communities.
The company's Rwandan staff works on-site to provide practical, hands-on training in quality control, design, and product management to artisan cooperatives. 100% of profits fund job skills training programs in business management, technology, entrepreneurship and literacy. Through these education programs artisans develop the knowledge and skills to engage independently with global markets and grow their own businesses.
