Inspiration & Impact This Giving Tuesday

This Giving Tuesday, we are inspired by the incredible artisans we’ve met in Ghana who—against all odds—are determined to create brighter futures for themselves and their families.

Since the beginning of Indego days, it has been our vision to change the lives of female artisans across Africa. That’s why, after eight years of impact in Rwanda, we are so excited to bring our mission to Ghana and empower more women who are deeply in need of resources and opportunities.

In Ghana’s poorest regions…

  • women on average earn less than 50 cents per day
  • almost 70% are illiterate
  • up to 50% have no formal education 

We are committed to addressing these inequities by providing artisans with opportunities to earn sustainable income, receive education, and achieve their dreams.

In January of 2016, we plan to complete our Ghana launch and bring life-changing economic empowerment and education programs to more than 150 local artisans.

But we need your support to make it happen. Help make an impact this Giving Tuesday.
