Why do we do it?
People with disabilities in the UK and the developing world often are socially isolated, have reduced access to education, and are excluded from employment. They have skills, talents, and abilities; and would just like to be given the same opportunities to shine as everyone else. Our mission is to enable, empower, and support differently able people to reach their full potential. We provide therapeutic crafts workshops and high-quality crafts training. In the UK, we provide hospitality training at our Cafe & Creative Space. We run social enterprises in the developing world that transform lives.
Watch our quick 4-minute video which shares the human story behind the products! As well as crafts from our projects in Ecuador and Peru, you can also pick up a craft kit to help you make the projects in our videos! In addition, we have some free kits available for children with disabilities. Please watch our crafts video on YouTube to find out more and use the 'contact us' page to request your free kit.
