UNCHR - Special Guest
UNHCR works in 126 countries to protect and support 16.1 million refugees. Within this vast population is one of the most diverse and talented pool of artisans that could exist.
MADE 51 is a new initiative to connect refugee artisans to global markets. MADE 51 will introduce new, authentic products and techniques to the marketplace, while giving refugees the opportunity to earn income, strengthen their resilience and restore their sense of self-determination.
At SOURCE, UNHCR will be showing products made by Tuareg refugees from Northern Mali who are living in Burkina Faso.
