Invest in Africa’s Future

Frequent CBB fans know that right next to the cafe is a Fair Trade section filled with many beautiful items for sale. The featured item this week is a handcrafted soapstone bowl by the Nyabigena Soapstone Carvers Cooperative. They are a fair trade organization in western Kenya which supports community projects, including a school, through sales of their products.

Soapstone dish

This soapstone dish supports struggling artisans and farmers in Africa. SERRV will donate $20 of your purchase to the Africa Capacity Building Project.

How awesome is it to be able to buy a gift for a friend or yourself and know that this purchase is also helping people struggling in another part of the world!?
