Bringing beautiful refugee-made
products to the global market.
Today, there are over 79.5 million people that have been forcibly displaced by war, violence, disaster and persecution. Whenever refugees flee their homes, they leave behind their livelihoods and prospects, which are critical for self-reliance. This means refugees often have no choice but to rely on others for, typically, 15-25 years.
It doesn’t have to be like this...
Having the opportunity to work and earn a living, to be self-reliant, is one of the most effective ways people can rebuild their lives with dignity.
To build that opportunity UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has created MADE51, a global brand of artisanal home décor and accessories, crafted by refugees. Each MADE51 product that reaches consumer hands plays a part in enabling refugees to contribute to their host country’s economy and strengthens their ties with local society. Each purchase also represents an unmistakable act of solidarity with refugees and an appreciation for the power of the human spirit.
