Baskets of Africa Supports These Organizations
Through monthly or annual donations, or membership, Baskets of Africa donates a portion of our sales to these organizations. We encourage you to look at these and other non-profits that are doing good work in Africa and consider making donations yourselves.
Most importantly, your purchases directly assist in the support of weavers, both women and men throughout much of Africa. The primary goal of Baskets of Africa is simply to buy as many baskets as we can in Africa in order to support as many weavers as we can on a reliable and consistent basis. In addition to purchasing baskets, we contribute to weaving groups with donations of money, training and/or material goods.
