Carrying hope, education & empowerment

to the women of Africa and their families

Our mamas* - the women in Karunga, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya - are talented seamstresses. They use only a treadle sewing machine, and yet produce an extraordinary high quality product. 


All fabric is sourced from local textile shops, where bold and vibrant patterns are prized.

Teams are assembled to produce the carriers. While two mamas are busy cutting the fabric, another team works on the sewing machine. Finally, there's another team wholly responsible for checking product quality and finishing details. 

These women are extremely proud of their work. They're leading the way for their children, demonstrating a sustainable solution for rising above poverty in their community. 

*Mamas is an affectionate name for local women.
