MADE51 is brought to life by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.
Through MADE51, refugees have a way to harness their artisanal skills and participate in the global economy, which allows them to add value to their host communities and secure their own futures.
MADE51 products are not just beautifully crafted with traditions, culture, skills, knowledge and craftmanship, they exude a real essence of humanity. They tell the timely and important story about how refugees can rebuild their futures and act as powerful contributors to the world economy. This also offers a refugee artisans a way to earn an income, and giving them opportunity to rebuild their livelihoods and re-establish their independence.
