Iskashitaa sells a variety of craft products made from recycled and donated products by refugees with the help of local Tucson volunteers. We also sell products made from locally harvested fruit and vegetables. Our products are available in our catalog, by mail order, or by visiting Iskashitaa at a festival.
The marketing and selling of products helps Iskashitaa and refugees in many ways:
Teaching skills:When marketing and selling products, refugees have an opportunity to practice English and learn important business skills.
Creating Revenue: 70% of income from refugee made crafts is returned to the refugee immediately.
Informing the public:When selling our products, Iskashitaa is able to spread the word about recycling, local foods, and refugees.
Helping Iskashitaa: 30% of income from refugee made crafts is used by Iskashitaa to continue supporting refugees and programs for refugees.
Iskashitaa sells products in stores all over Tucson.
