Artisan made

Select a Gift that Gives Back from our online shop with a wide selection of storage baskets and home décor items – all handmade from locally sourced materials and certified Fair Trade.

Our mission is to bring sustainable and stable income to as many artisans as possible in rural areas of Kenya, Tanzania and Ghana where there are few possibilities for employment and limited access to resources such as clean water, electricity, and sanitation.

Crafting Mifuko products gives the artisans a chance to earn a better living by using the skills that have been passed down from one generation to another.

Give a non-material gift

If you would prefer to give a non-material gift to your loved one, there are many options in the Mifuko Trust program to choose from!
