Wooden ornament | Carved bird

We named this little bird Tumaini which in Swahili means trust and it's our signature bird for Mifuko Trust – a non-profit organization that aims to improve the lives of the artisans and their communities through projects like Wash and Grow! -project which builds dry toilets and organises training on ecological sanitation. Mifuko donates all the profits from the sales of Tumaini birds to Mifuko Trust.

Tumaini has been carved out of a fallen jacaranda tree branch and it can be hung from its ribbon on a doorway, in a window or Christmas tree. Or use it to decorate your bag.

Mifuko collaborates with Kapya Kitungwa and his workshop in the production of ornamental wooden birds. Mr. Kitungwa is a Congolese refugee now living in Nairobi, Kenya. His workshop employs other Congolese refugees living in Kenya. Through this collaboration Mifuko is able to expand its support to communities beyond women in rural Kenya.
