Artisan Organization:Mai Handicrafts
Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts is an income generating and educational project for poor and disadvantaged women. It provides employment and training as well as promoting self-reliance amongst disadvantaged families and ethnic minorities in Southern Vietnam. Besides this activity, Mai has established itself as the primary marketing agent for neglected women in the rural area by active product development and by selling Vietnamese handicrafts product to export and local market. It also tries to seek a model of social development in which social service can not be separated from economic self-reliance. We want to promote Vietnamese Culture and beautiful artisan goods to the world."
