African Artists' Community Development Project (AACDP)
We are a small non profit that buys crafts from African artisans, sells the crafts in the US, and sends the profits back to grass roots aid organizations in the same locality as the artists.
Specifically we have two programs:
One that sells the wares of a women's arts cooperative in Lusaka and returns the profits to the Upeme Hope Children's center, a small orphanage outside of Lusaka, Zambia.
The other sells crafts from Mukuni Village artists to raise money for the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Home for the Disabled in Livingstone, Zambia.
