    Story Behind the Art:

    The sign for the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya indicates that it is 'the last house towards the Obunga slums' the most destitute area of Kisumu. TEMAK is an organization that offers job training in tailoring, hairdressing, secretarial skills, craft making, and recently computers to unwed mothers, girls, and others in the Obunga slum community. As a community center, the organization also provides the community with an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues.

    • Absolutely adorable

      I bought one of these pins a long time ago and I just had to let everyone know how well-made and unique it is. Great with a casual blouse or shirt; I've worn it on a scarf and pinned it to my fabric purse as well. No one who sees it has been able to resist asking about it.

    • "LOVE IT"!
      Verified Purchase

      This is a whimsical Pin that always makes me "smile". I loved it instantly. The only disappointment for me was that it was made from very thin wire which makes it very fragile and that I understand because it is handcrafted, but I still love it! I hope Overstock will continue to bring its customers more designs.

      Bought this for my daughter who works in a coffee shop who also does bike tours. Thought it would be fun for her to wear at work.

      Very nice piece, except for tiny sharp safety pin fastener. Put it a casual jacket that won't be changed often.
