Give more this holiday season. Give dignity. Share the story. We believe that in a world of Black Fridays and consumerism insanity, there is a way to give more. Karama is an Arabic word that means dignity and a Swahili word meaning something to share. Karama desires to share dignity with African artisans who might otherwise be resigned to a live of poverty. We desire to share life with artisans, and in turn, lead them to share their lives with you. In the end, it’s not about the product, but the life behind it. Karama’s mission is to provide a market for high-quality African products and to build relationships with African artisans and businesses. We partner with small local African businesses and assist them in financing, designing, and marketing their products in the US. Proceeds from sales benefit YoungLife Africa. When you purchase from Karama this holiday season, you are giving more!
