This year we’re delighted to have four different styles of nativity sets to choose from, all beautifully crafted from banana tree bark or fashioned with wire and beads. There’s a very cute reindeer, Father Christmas on his camel, an angel made using banana tree bark, hand-made Christmas cards and individual tribal figures to bring an African theme to your Christmas.

There are many good reasons to shop with us, not least because these gifts are gorgeous. But also consider the difference you are making:

  • You are giving a gift that is beautiful, unique, different, very well made and won’t be forgotten
  • You are supporting the artists who produce the crafts – check out James Njoroge and John Maina and Somonaflo Enterprises
  • You are supporting our work in Kenya. Your money will feed into smokeless stoves, rain water harvesting tanks, courses run in lifeskills, business training, better latrines in schools, washrooms for girls in school and so much more.
