Savanna Baskets is a social enterprise, set up to bring rural artisans together into cooperatives, help them produce and market their products through export. The main export product of the Company is handmade baskets known internationally as Bolgatanga Baskets. The Company is a rural based poverty alleviation business and export oriented in its operations and activities.
Savanna Baskets is set on a mission to deliver quality baskets to its customers on timely basis, empower our artisans with sustainable incomes, and make a difference in their lives no matter how big or small.
In this regard, the Company has strategically positioned itself both locally and internationally to deliver value to the market by adopting a strategy of product leadership, providing premium quality baskets to its customers.
Savanna Baskets seeks to provide the best working conditions for its employees and producers to deliver products, which meet the full expectations of its customers, generate sustainable incomes to the weavers without compromising on safe environmental practices.
We are equally guided by our core values, where we put our customers at the center of our operations. We value, challenge and reward our weavers and employees as well as drive excellent sustainable financial performance. Our vision and values guide the choices and decisions we make as a business.
Savanna Baskets is not just another basket business. We are on a mission with a vision to create economic opportunities for economically marginalized, poor, and vulnerable rural women groups in Ghana. We are committed to alleviating rural poverty for the most vulnerable producers in rural communities who are endowed with amazing traditional craft skills, paying attention to equitable and sustainable incomes, and adopting environmentally safe practices.
We have established a collaborative partnership relationship with our producers rather than factory-worker type relationship. Our vision is to build the capacity of the producers to a level of independence rather than dependence.
To achieve this, we recognize, appreciate, and value the purchasing power of those who buy our products. We believe that the buyer does not only deserve the best quality product and service but should also be empowered with knowledge about the weavers’ culture, values as well as the social and economic conditions under which the products are made.
Being hundred percent natural, the baskets are environmentally friendly as the waste decomposes easily, enriching the soil for natural re-vegetation.
