    Story Behind the Art:

    The sign for the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya (TEMAK) indicates that it is 'the last house towards the Obunga slums,' the most destitute area of Kisumu. The organization provides the community with an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues. Many of the young women at TEMAK participate in making crafts, earning income to support themselves and their families. In the past few years, TEMAK has also become a craft center for the artisans and craftspeople in the town of Kisumu by providing local and international sales outlets that make available a sustainable income for many in the community.

    • A little wire can change the world. Charming!

      I will give this to a daughter who loves whimsy, and she will love it long after I leave this world. It shows what a little love and imagination can do to help rebuild our world. At Christmas time, I think that an agency would be well advised to help people to make pots and to start little seedlings of pine or balsam to sell at stores carrying these products, and what they sell for here with tiny decoration could change a needy family's life. Thank you. Barbara E. H.

    • Dancing Girl is BIG!

      I sent the Dancing Girl pin from Kenya for a gift. The recipient said it was really beautiful and fun...but it arrived without the gift card I wanted enclosed...and without any information about the Kenyan Cooperative which designed and produced the jewelry...which is the best part of the marketing story.

    • "Unique"

      As in the case of the matching earrings, this is a beautifully unique piece that deserves to be owned by a person who can/will appreciate its uniqueness, delicacy, and the treasure it is.
