CHF’s High Impact Revitalization of the Economy of Aceh (HIRE-Aceh) program was designed to rapidly resettle survivors and re-engage them in gainful economic activity. One component is focusing on thousands of low-income artisans who lost their only source of income when the earthquake-tsunami struck to help them revitalize their economies and reestablish a sense of normalcy into their lives.
CHF is working with a national crafts association of local partners to: provide equipment and supplies to artisans, train displaced women to make handicrafts for the local market, and build a regional handicraft training facility.
By focusing on the crafts sector, CHF is not only helping economic revitalization but is also preserving Aceh’s very unique cultural heritage which is providing long-term and sustainable sources of income for thousands of low-income artisans.
