MISSION

Artisan Global is a 501c(3) non profit that develops sustainable jobs, strategies and workspaces alongside international artisan businesses in post-conflict regions. 

VISION

We are working together with local artisan businesses to elevate entrepreneurs and break cycles of extreme poverty in communities around the world.  

Our first pilot project is in progress in Gulu, Uganda. We are building a multi-purpose Artisan Workspace that will give work and rapidly increase employment opportunities in Northern Uganda.
