Artisans from Tanzania
Although the Maasai women of Tanzania who formed Naapok-Nanyok are no longer nomadic, their lives resolved around livestock. The five-month dry season kills the grass, leaving the goats to die, meaning no milk for Maasai children. Each product sold creates a savings fund for new goats to replace any that die. In a recent year, the women saved $150 from their handmade products and bought 15 goats to nourish their children.
