Soutenir les artisans de Kpalimé

<p>The handicraft industry in Kpalim&eacute;, Togo, following the Covid-19 crisis, has come to a dead end. The local artisans, no longer able to rely on tourism to sell their creations, end up without financing for their raw materials or the rent of their premises.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The importance of preserving the uniqueness of the city of Kpalim&eacute;, an important place for handicraft throughout the world, as well as the work of its artisans, is essential. It is possible, with your help, to preserve not only their jobs but also their knowledge</p>

Allocation of funds

<p>We have selected ten artisans using different artistic techniques who are in urgent financing needs:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Gilles, calebash artisan</p> <p>Antoine, plastic artist specialised in batik</p> <p>Gameli, cabinetmaker and calabash artisan</p> <p>Messan, calabash artisan</p> <p>Ayi Kossi, djemb&eacute; sculptor</p> <p>Koffa, jewellery artisan</p> <p>Ibrahim, jewellery and batik artist</p> <p>Etse, plastic artist specialised in batik</p> <p>Jean, pearl jewellery artist</p> <p>Yebois Duyiboe, calabash artisan.</p> <p>Once all the money is received and collected, part of the supplies will be bought in France and brought directly to Kpalim&eacute;. Another part will be managed directly on site by M&eacute;lanie, a regular visitor. The distribution for the rental financing will be made according to the urgency of each artisan.</p> <p>The need for primary materials varies from one artisan to the other.</p> <p>The price of a rent for a workshop is about 10,000 CFA francs (about 15 euros). Many artisans have to lose their workshops for not being able to pay their rent. You would help them to preserve the minimum necessary to carry out their activity!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Thank you!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
