Artisan small bag – Chikumbuso Widows & Orphans Project

I encountered the project called Chikumbuso, a grassroots project in Ng’ombe, Zambia, which provides an alternative lifestyle to the most vulnerable women and children in the township.

Through skill training, micro enterprise supports their artists and their families and brings money back into the project.  The first priority for the group became finding a means of making money. They had little formal education and leaned on artistic skills. The handbag project began with just a few recycled Shoprite bags, a crochet hook and a pair of scissors. Today, the group has grown to 45 widows and 25 at risk youth making beautiful handcrafted items.

I have been using another bag from Chikumbuso for five years, it doesn’t become old and it is waterproof.

Most of the bags were sold out before introducing on our website. This is the last bag.  It has a small pocket inside the bag, this is not on sale on our website.  The price was £39 but now £30.   Please contact us if you would like to purchase this wonderful bag.

Buying this bag supports families affected by HIV/AIDS.
