OBJECTIVES

To access gifted art, jewelery, craft and gift artisans, largely drawn from rural and slum communities, to wealth creating global markets. Capitalize on sustainable and recycled raw materials to develop an attractive and unique range of products that have a competitive edge in global markets. Access ethical markets with a human face that allow artisans to generate acceptable returns to their investments.

 

ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION

Environmental conservation is a key pillar of Bawa Hope’s core values. Bawa seeks to use enterprise as a tool not only for empowering marginalized artisans, but safeguarding the environment.

The women, living in these informal settlements, see value in many of the things that we throw away! The bags combine sisal, which occurs in abundance, and waste banana fibre amongst other materials to create an attractive and functional fashion accessory. By buying these products, you help create demand that fuels further collection, processing and utilization of waste material thus safeguarding the environment.
