Made by the Turkana Tribe, each piece is hand-finished to give it the rich, time-worn gleam of an African historical piece. Each item is smoked in a kiln for a good length of time to create that beautiful, smoky color. Because of the handmade quality, no two pieces are exactly the same. The disparity in color and shine ensures that each piece has its own unique character and beauty. Each reproduction is passed down through generations.
For every $10 raised, $2 goes towards administrative and managerial costs unless otherwise requested by the donor. Please note that all members of the LAHU-USA team based in the United States and the four Directors based in Uganda are unpaid volunteers. Additionally, there are four support team members that are salaried employees of the organization in Uganda.
