Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts is a nonprofit organization that provides income generation and marketing services to Vietnamese artisans. Mai Handicrafts runs several craft production projects and markets the work of numerous other craft producers. During recent years, Mai Handicrafts has established itself as the primary marketing agent for artisans from neglected families and for women. It practices a model of social development in which social service cannot be separated from economic self-reliance. Mai Handicrafts sales fund various community development activities, including clean water projects, vocational training equipment purchase and teacher wage subsidies. Mai Handicrafts artisans receive social and health insurance, and can apply for scholarship funds. 

Some of the proceeds from handicrafts sales continue to fund the program for street children out of which Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts originated. The organization originally worked with children who could not go to school due to lack of legal papers and inability to pay tuition. Mai Handicrafts provided informal literacy classes.
