Refugees often leave behind their livelihoods when fleeing violence. MADE51 offers refugee artisans a way to earn an income and, in do doing, the opportunity to rebuild their livelihoods and re-establish their independence.
MADE51 is brought to life by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.
Refugees have skills and talents that only need a chance to grow and flourish. Within each piece lies a story of history and culture, and the chance for a person who has fled war and persecution to offer something of beauty and style to the world.
