Today, more than 100 million people have been forcibly displaced by war, violence, disaster and persecution. Whenever refugees flee their homes, they leave behind their livelihoods and prospects, which are essential for self-reliance. This means that refugees often have no choice but to depend on others for, typically, 15 to 25 years.
In response to this, the United Nations Refugee Agency has created MADE51, a global brand of handmade home decor and accessories made by refugees. Every MADE51 product that reaches the hands of consumers helps refugees contribute to the economy of their host country and strengthens their ties to local society.
