Maiyet is deeply committed to forging partnerships with artisans to promote self-sufficiency and entrepreneurship in developing economies. In order to ensure success for both Maiyet and its partner companies, Maiyet has entered into a strategic partnership with Nest, an independent nonprofit organization, dedicated to training and developing artisan businesses.
Maiyet and Nest continue to search globally for partner companies that exhibit strong leadership, are scalable, and can positively transform their communities. Nest completes rigorous needs’ assessments of existing and potential partners, and develops customized short- and long- term training and development programs with a goal to alleviate poverty, empower women and promote peace. Maiyet forms deep partnerships with companies and artisans, paying fair wages and advance deposits. Furthermore, Maiyet donates a percentage of profits towards training and development.
Together, Maiyet & Nest are working to create social compliance reports and social evaluation metrics which will help measure our collective impact. Through the guidance of industry experts and various fellowship programs, Nest helps implement customized training programs that include design direction, business & leadership development, and safety guidelines. Maiyet and Nest celebrate artisanship as a powerful way to promote prosperity and stability throughout the world.
