Over $1.172M invested in 47 artisans

Karama began in 2004, working with one artisan partner in one country (Ethiopia) and has expanded to partnering with 47 artisan groups in 8 countries. Karama has invested over $1,172,000 in talented artisans (many of them woman-owned), helping them grow their businesses and provide resources for themselves and their families. 

18 years working with artisans in 8 countries

Karama's goal is to provide purposeful, dignified work for artisans working in Africa and Haiti.  We've provided tools and equipment, conducted skills and leadership training and consulted on quality improvement processes to help artisans produce beautiful, handmade products.

$273K donated to Young Life

Karama's dual focus is sustaining artisans and giving back from our proceeds as a non-profit to send teens to Young Life camp in Africa and Haiti.  Over the past 18 years, Karama has given $273,458 to send 5,469 kids to camp for an opportunity to laugh, learn and hear the Gospel.
