Company History

Under the leadership of Her Highness Sheikha Shamsa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan, the Emirates Red Crescent President’s Assistant for Women’s Affairs, Al Ghadeer UAE Crafts organisation was founded in 2006 to offer vocational training aimed at developing the knowledge and skills of underprivileged women in the UAE to ensure them with a dignified life. The organisation expands on their crafts, teaches them new technical skills and supplies them with the raw materials and designs to create culturally inspired products that are sold locally and internationally. Al Ghadeer's journey started with just three craftswomen working in an office at the Emirates Red Crescent producing a few products. Today, their community consists of more than 250 craftswomen, local and expat from across all emirates, producing more than 60 products ranging from corporate gifts, stationery, home accessories, and a fashion line. The organisation includes financial, social, health and educational support systems.
