Saffy Handicrafts (The Philippines - Fair Trade)


Saffy Handicrafts

Saffy Handicrafts - serving Filipino Youth since 1966.

From the belief of Sister Juliaan Mullie, ICM, a Belgian missionary nun, that one can “Fight Hunger Through Work”, SAFFY or Social Action for Filipino Youth saw the light of day in 1966. This organization created alternative sources of livelihood for the unemployed and out-of-school youths living in the marginalized areas of Manila.

The organization was later incorporated in 1970 as Social Action Foundation for Rural and Urban Development, Inc. or SAFRUDI, a non-stock, non-profit social development entity imbued with Christian values.
