The NGO that Nkuku are proud to work with, was established to help alleviate the suffering of rural families, who faced the ongoing struggle of drought. By investing time and training in women from these communities, this NGO successfully provides a supplementary and consistent income for farming families, as well as providing an independent income and purpose to over four hundred women, empowering them to make their own money. That’s not to say production is always smooth. The monsoon season can have a serious effect on productivity. Often the women work outside or in their villages and quite rightly are not happy to work in the rain and many become busy working on the land. This means Nkuku have to plan ahead with their orders to ensure they are well stocked. They love this part of the production, and believe it makes this collection even more unique. The beautiful handwoven baskets, are certainly worth the wait.
