In fall 2008, my younger sister Natalie and I volunteered in Arusha, Tanzania. We taught English at a small vocational training school as well as volunteered at an orphanage. Natalie and I were so inspired by the incredible Generosity, Creativity, and Hope that we witnessed in the people we met during our three months in Arusha. In my own personal journey I have found that Generosity, Creativity, and Hope are characteristics that can be found in people all over the world.

I have witnessed incredible Generosity while studying abroad in Ethiopia, where “Ethiopian Hospitality” is fundamental to Ethiopian culture. On family vacations to Mexico the warmth of the people and the rhythm of the way of life always made me feel at home south of the border.

I have witnessed incredible Generosity while studying abroad in Ethiopia, where “Ethiopian Hospitality” is fundamental to Ethiopian culture. On family vacations to Mexico the warmth of the people and the rhythm of the way of life always made me feel at home south of the border.

I have witnessed Creativity in the resourcefulness of children in Arusha, who make toys out of found objects; wheels made from tires rolled down the street with metal poles or sticks, and plastic bag soccer balls for example. Walking down Alberta Street in my hometown Portland, Oregon on Last Thursday, artists line the street to sell their unique crafts in a celebration of Portland culture.

I have witnessed Hope right here in Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Cleveland in October 2010 and have caught the bug of Hope that is contagious among Clevelanders. For a city that does not have the best reputation, the hopefulness of its citizens makes up for it. This is why some call it Believeland – people here believe in their city and have Hope for its bright future. Hope is contagious, Generosity and Creativity inspiring. Generosity, Creativity, and Hope are the driving principles behind Karibuni Creations.

A portion of proceeds from card sales will go directly towards education sponsorships to students in Africa. Students from Wedgner Vocational Training School will receive continuing education sponsorships, while the children from the orphanage will receive tuition for an English-medium primary school. The gift of education is the best gift one can give. Please feel free to contact me to learn more.

Thank you and Karibuni,
