Furaha means 'happiness' in Swahili!

Each Neema Bag is hand-crafted by mamas in Uru, Tanzania. Mama's are paid fair and livable wages to sewn and bead each bag with love to raise funds for Neema International. Fabrics are locally sourced in Tanzania, including seasonal kitenge (African-print) fabrics that are on the inside of each bag. Each bag raises enough funds to feed Uru Academy (100 children) with two meals and snack for one day. Each bag has a tag on it as well as an insert, explaining the cause that Neema Bags support.

Kitenge: the pattern that women in Tanzania where on their Kangas (large fabric sheets wrapped around their waist.) Kitenge is the pride of Tanzanian women, as it shows their independence and resilience in the face of adversity. Women in Tanzania receive new kitenge fabrics on special occasions such as their wedding, coming of age or birth of a child.

100% of funds go directly towards Neema International projects.

Special requests are hard to accommodate, as bags are made in Tanzania and then brought by volunteers to the US. We do customized monograms (see last photo), which can take about a week to ship. Plain bags ship the next day. Each Neema Bag is unique, so the pattern on the inside is a fun surprise.

This is a very pretty yet sturdy bag. I love the colors and I just used it on a weekend trip to keep things together in my carry-on bag. I know I will use it again and again.
