Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

We buy crafts from African artists at fair market prices and use the profits from their sale to help fund school expenses for artists' children, income generation projects for mothers of disabled children and the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Center for Disabled Children in Livingstone, Zambia 

The Mama Bakhita Center has changed the way disabled children are treated in Livingstone. In a major cultural shift, these children are no longer objects of shame to be hidden away. Many have become active members of the community with pride and pleasure in their abilities. This is huge.

 The crafts pay for alot of what we do, as well as support the artists' families. But each year brings us more people who want to go to school, want to build a small house of their own, want to start small businesses. So we are asking for help to expand the project beyond what our craft sales can pay for.

We know every individual receiving tuition and visit them when we make our visits to the Mama Bakhita Center. We are in touch with them during the year through email and with the help of Sr. Agness  Daka, head of the Mama Bakhita Center in Livingstone, and Sydney Mwamba, our man in the field in Lusaka. Our organization is small, has virtually no overhead, being run out of my home, no one takes any salary and we pay our own way to Zambia. Thank you for what ever help you can offer.

Gratefully, Marsha Winsryg
