Aid to Artisans has spent 40 years creating economic opportunities for well over 100,000 artisans in more than 110 countries where their livelihoods, communities and craft traditions are at risk.

Over the past 15 years, our efforts have leveraged nearly $230 million in retail sales. This income has empowered 125,000 artisans in 72 emerging regions of the world. About 70% of the artisans we work with are women.

Aid to Artisans is a grant-funded organization and we only work with artisans where we have a current program. We can provide services such as Market Readiness Programs or Customized Training for artisans in countries where we do not have a current program.
