Maiyet in Partnership with Nest

Commitment by

Maiyet

In 2011, Maiyet, in partnership with Nest, committed to building the capacity of its partner artisan companies and craftsmen in developing economies in line with its mission to provide market access to heritage craftsmen who are both profitable and socially responsible, to empower women, and to promote peace. To do this, Maiyet aims to raise $2 million over three years to finance the implementation (by Nest) of customized capacity building programs. These programs include trainings and workshops in business, product development and design expertise, production facilities and safety training, access to materials, English and literacy, technology development, and leadership development. Maiyet will then purchase $3 million in goods from select companies that benefit from Nest's capacity building programs.
