About Us

What We Do

Established in 2000, Industree Foundation holistically tackles the root causes of poverty by creating an ownership based, organised creative manufacturing ecosystem for women.

Industree Foundation’s comprehensive approach helps communities assess their traditional skill base, organize them into production units, develop products that appeal to contemporary markets, and create consistent demand to create sustainable businesses at the lowest possible costs. Our approach has tripled the incomes of artisans in non-farm occupations by leveraging their artisanal skills and integrating them into the creative industries sector. Industree Foundation believes that if the poor have access to sustained and consistent demand for their products and services and are provided with an enabling ecosystem, they can integrate into the formal economy and lift themselves out of poverty.

Vision & Mission

Industree envisions a world in which millions of producers rise out of poverty by building sustainable livelihoods in creative manufacturing.

We believe that when producers have access to an enabling ecosystem they are able to pursue their futures with dignity, and that when women earn they are empowered at home and in their communities.

Industree builds sustainable livelihoods in the creative manufacturing sector to ensure that underemployed women can have high and regular incomes, decent and equitable working conditions, and the ability to cope with life crises.
