[description] => ATA has undertaken a multi-partnered project funded by former Academy for Educational Development, now FHI 360. The main goal of this project is to enhance health, education, economic benefits, cultural appreciation and environmental protection through the development of sustainable tourism. ATA will focus its efforts on four key overarching areas of support over the life of this project: (1) promote the craft sector as a key experience in tourist destinations and a key economic driver for reducing poverty, creating employment and raising the socio-economic status of Ethiopian artisans; (2) stimulate the development of marketable, culturally appropriate and environmentally sound handmade products through market-driven product development design and technical assistance; (3) build the capacity of artisans to more effectively manage for business success, respond to business opportunities and create and maintain buyer relations; and (4) increase market access through developing and expanding artisan “touch points” and more regionally linked and based market opportunities to maximize artisans sales from the tourist industry. ATA has reached more than 200 artisans living in the Central and Southern Rift Valley of Ethiopia. These 200 artisans represent 9 enterprises that develop products in textiles, wood, horn, basketry, and calabash. Their product collection embodies the lines for home décor, gift, fashion, and hotel accessories. They have developed baskets, curtains, placemats, pillows, scarves, vases, and among others.
