Sakiba is committed to the dignity and independence of the women in our project in Togo.
In 2009 we started to train women in Togo / West Africa in the demanding technique of bead crocheting. Since 2010 they have been manufacturing Sakiba’s creations with great skill. The finishing (such as attaching the clasps) takes place in our studio in Vienna.
Through fair wages and decent working conditions, we are able offer these women sustainable employment. Thus they can not only look after their families and enable their children to go to school, they also contribute to the economic strengthening of their social environment.
We are regularly on site ourselves to ensure that not only the living and working conditions of the women are dignified, but that they also manage the fruits of their labor independently. We accompany and support them in all technical, organizational and social issues.
By buying a piece of jewelry from SAKIBA, you are giving these women the courage and strength they need to create a stable basis for a future in their own country for themselves, their families and, above all, their children.
