CRAFTLINK

Craftlink is a non-profit organization devoted to providing fair pay and economic stability to women from ethnic minorities and disadvantaged groups in Vietnam. After decades of foreign occupation, war, and economic instability, these women have been able to reconnect with their rich history and rise out of poverty by preserving and promoting their traditional handicrafts. Through skills training and fair compensation, the group preserves traditional skills and empowers women to become financial leaders in their homes and communities.
