Make a difference in the lives of children and artisans.
ShopatMAP (www.shopatmap.org) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with the mission to provide economic opportunity to emerging artisans while powering community development programs around the world.
Handcraft production is one of the largest forms of employment in the world. For many rural artisans, handcrafting is their only means of employment, but due to limited access to marketplaces for selling their goods they struggle to make an income.
Our products are ethically sourced from emerging and disadvantaged artisans including survivors of domestic violence, single mothers, individuals with disabilities, individuals living in extreme poverty and young entrepreneurs.
We are deeply committed to elevating their lives by ethically sourcing their products, providing them with dignified wages. Additionally we provide them holistic social programs such as financial literacy and vocational training.
Finally, we reinvest in the communities where we work through Moms Against Poverty’s programs. By providing education and essential provisions to impoverished children, we strengthen the community and its future.
Our vision is to create equity and sustainability in marginalized communities and to break the cycle of generational poverty.
