Global collaboration with industry leaders
Refugees face many constraints that limit their ability to sell their products to external markets. Legal restrictions, isolation, limited design knowledge and a lack of access to basic business support services are major obstacles. As a result, refugees are often left out of the global artisan economy.
MADE51 is designed to be a global collaborative initiative that relies on the support of Strategic Partners to help refugee artisans successfully overcome these obstacles and connect with international markets in a sustainable way.
Our current partners are industry-leaders who have committed to offer long-term support to UNHCR to build and scale MADE51.
We seek additional support from experts in the following areas: retail, design, tech solutions, impact measurement, project funding, logistics, fulfilment, and access to finance. If you are interested in collaborating with us in these areas, please learn more about our current needs or get in touch.
