Artisans from Mauritius
CraftAid, founded in 1982, provides jobs for people with disabilities (about 46 percent of current employees have disabilities.) Many of the artisans are hearing-impaired. CraftAid also employs many women responsible for providing for their families. CraftAid changes lives. Raima, a hearing-impaired artisan for CraftAid, found friends and contentment through her work. She also found Tana, her husband. Now they are married and have a son. Through their work, they can provide for their young family in Mauritius.
