Continuing our story with FEED Projects, we are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration: the FEED 5 Kenya Cosmetics Pouch. Exclusively ours, the pouch upholds FEED Project’s commitment to providing meals to school children through the United Nation’s World Food Programme — this time providing 5 nutritious school meals.
Similar to our 2009 FEED 2 Kenya Bag, the pouch is handmade from traditional Kenyan fabrics by a coop of women and deaf Kenyans. Instead of using beaded burlap and Masai fabric, our FEED 5 Kenya Cosmetic Pouch is fashioned from the durable Kikoy fabric that traditionally is worn by Southeast African men. Unlike the bolder and more elaborate kanga sarong worn by African women, the kikoy sarong is recognized for its heavier cotton fabric and simpler design — often a single color bordered by bolder stripes.
Around the world over 350 million children go to bed hungry each night; and, in Kenya alone, the World Food Programme provides school meals to 1.2 million children. Oftentimes, these school meals are the only source of food that Kenyan children will receive each day; and, as a result, these meals encourage children to attend classes and continue their education. Your purchase of the FEED 5 Kenya Cosmetics Pouch will provide five school meals to the World Food Programme, thus nourishing more children and empowering them to survive, learn and improve their lives.
