Craft Creates Life Choices For Maasai And Kamba Communities

Project 2017-02-21 15:48:33 +1300

Only a few years ago Maasai and Kamba communities suffered a series of debilitating droughts threatening lives and a fragile farming economy.  Working with ChildFund NZ and using centuries old craft they came together to create Maka Emali (click link to see their Facebook page) through which they are empowered to market and sell their craft internationally.

 

 

Through this the health, education and employment prospects for both tribes in the Emali area have dramatically improved. 

We are raising $500 to support furnishing a retail site in Emali, Kenya, where Maasai and Kamba craftswomen can gather to create, sell and market their beautiful handcrafted jewellery and woven baskets.

You may have seen them for sale in IkoIko here in New Zealand.   

 

Maka Emali The basket you could win

 

What are we raising money for?

This is a short, sharp campaign to raise $500 in four weeks supporting this ChildFund initiative and is a crowdfunding project as part of the Tech Futures Lab applied Masters programme. 

 

 A few words about the TFL team:

Lauren Graham: I'm an early childhood teacher passionate about connecting people, and looking to use emerging and disruptive technologies to grow kiwis cultural capital :)

James Brown: I am a serial networker who is looking to create collaboration in order to share Capital, Capability and IP using the innovation/technology I will learn while at Tech Futures Lab.

Cathy Hardinge: I am learning about future technologies to disrupt my professional career, in order to create opportunities which help people as we move into our fast changing world.

Lisa Traill: Taking a year out to fully engage in the TFL Masters, my background includes working across a range of industries with the main focus being around people change and transformation of operations through technology.  

 

Final note

We will share your contact information with ChildFund, as your donation has tax deductibility status for donations of $5 or more; therefore a tax deductible receipt will be issued by ChildFund NZ for your donation.
