Giving Back

Lisa Wright, through African Trading Port is determined to show that Africa is not only a place of hardship, it is also filled with beauty, incredible scenery, friendly people and exceptional craft and homewares.  By promoting well-made, well priced, functional and artistic craft, African Trading Port aims to contribute to the emergence of Africa as a source of inspiration and spiritual strength.

Rural Craft Development

The focus is on providing local villages with sustainable materials, facilities and infrastructure – enabling them to utilise traditional craft methods to create some amazing products, however empowering them with modern business skills in order to get the crafts to markets within major cities.  Of course, this in turn empowers a future generation with traditional knowledge and skills mixed with modern business tools.
