Our baskets are handmade by women of Maam Samba Rural Cooperative of the NGO of Ndem village in Senegal, located at 120km from Dakar. This NGO created for more than 30 years now, works very actively for the development of its village as well as 15 other surrounding villages in areas such as Crafts, Health, Environment and Education.
The craft centre is at the heart of the NGO’s project, as it represents the root of the social and solidarity economy of Ndem village and its surroundings. From the beginning of its creation, it strives to value traditional African know-how while adapting to the norms and qualities of the international market, and this in an ethical vision of work and the environment. It respects the principles of fair trade, allowing artisans to live decently in their environment and culture. The craft centre employs more than a hundred women working in different sectors such as textiles, basketry and dyeing.
All the profits generated by commercial projects are re-injected into the various poles of the NGO, as well as the new small projects that are put in place, in order to allow their sustainability.
