Salay Handmade manufactures handmade paper products and crafts made of indigenous materials. It was set up to address unemployment and poverty caused by the insurgency affecting the community of Salay in the Philippines. It has given opportunities to 150-400 disadvantaged producers to pursue a decent livelihood in paper making, crafting and card design.
Salay is now known for its art in paper making as a livelihood project and for fostering peace and international friendship. The project also serves as a promoter for local tourism, employment generation and is a major contributor to the vibrancy of the local economy as it trades globally but impacts locally.
