THE ARTISAN : MEYELO
Meyelo is committed to empowering artisans with sustainable income through their craft. Their long term investment in helping others is the foundation of their business model. By investing in small businesses in developing countries it brings about social and economic change. Every purchase provides artisans in Kenya with a source of fair trade income, support for their community, and a global platform for their work. Many skilled artisans have limited access to education and economic opportunity. Meyelo provides training programs in business practices to ensure the understanding of the global market. Meyelo works with Maasai villages to provide access to education, water, farming co-ops and medical needs. Every purchase supports their 80 artisan partners, their families, and their communities. By creating sustainable programs Meyelo empowers women, girls and their communities.
