Each one of our craft centres is made up of hardworking people. Global Gift Innovators participates in regular evaluations by Poverty Stoplight, a leading evaluation process to determine areas of concern, and change over time. This helps to deliberately impact not only the artisans and families that work within the craft centres, but the community at large.
75% of Profits
“We see lots of organizations with great heart. They want to help, but somehow it just doesn’t work. We believe in measuring community impact and learning continually.”
–Mark McCollough, Founder
"I believe gift store owners should be able to support local communities and give guests access to gifts with a story, without having to compromise quality or appeal. Communities have such a wealth of talent and creativity. With a little training and support, they can create beautiful, high quality designs that travelers love!"
"Global Gift Innovators has given us hope again. They are training us in so many elements of business. Our crafters have become positive and hopeful. We are so blessed to be part of this journey. We are growing our business with lots of new ideas and products."
The craft centre was plagued with distrust among artisans, poorly crafted items, and little traffic from customers. The workers were barely scraping by.
After a partnership with Global Gift Innovators, Madilika has become a thriving business, with more than 75% of profits returned to local communities.
For the first time ever, craft centre members understand business, are investing in their own inventory, and are taking home fair and consistent profits each month.
