The African House

Turkey’s first lady is leading cultural diplomacy with the African continent through the African House initiative, that supports women and children. Handcrafted products are purchased from women producers in various African countries and brought to the buyer in a fair market at the value they deserve at the African Culture House and Handicrafts Market. The income generated is used for the capacity-building projects of African women. African House also organizes social and cultural activities. Programmes that contribute to Turkey-Africa relations are held. During  Africa Day on 25 May, summits, trade forums, expos, and African art performance events are organised.
