Indego Africa is a forward-thinking, female-focused global nonprofit and New York City design house that does things a little differently. Under the leadership of CEO Karen Yelick, IA partners with female artisans throughout Rwanda and Ghana who handcraft products like baskets and pillows, and in turn invests 100 percent of profits from product sales into business education programs for those same artisans. Behind it all, there is a vision: that every woman around the world is empowered through education and financial responsibility to carry her community to peace and prosperity. Of course, it helps to start a bit smaller. In Burundi, for example, IA recently launched a photography project in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees that aims to bring “beauty to the difficult situation inherently created under the circumstances surrounding a refugee camp,” according to Creative Director Deirdre King. Through this project, titled “In Support of Refugees,” 50 women refugees from Burundi are being provided with vocational and business training.
