    Story Behind the Art
    The Buganda Food Trays are the products of the Kaboja Women's co-operative from the Buganda Tribe of Uganda. They are mainly based in the Central Tribal area of the country. They are naturally gifted basket weavers with skills passed down to them by their mothers and grandmothers. They are mostly from the poorest of the poor tribal areas and the basket weaving is the only occupation they know.

    Most of these mothers are single mothers who must fend for themselves because they have been abandoned by their husbands due to tribal wars. The purpose of forming the co-operative is to empower them to produce more high-quality products for export. By purchasing these baskets, not only do you help this group to their living standards but hopefully able to educate their children and themselves as well.
