CU FOR AFRICA is an initiative which we created to support people in Ghana. We wish to ensure a better future for women in Ghana; not only adults, but also young women and girls, who are only starting their journey of life. By giving them opportunity for better education we create new perspectives and not only give hope, but also a real chance for a better tomorrow.
KENTE - traditional, characteristic for Akan people from Ghana, multicolor pattern, from which robes of the rulers were made a long time ago. It is extraordinarily energetic, full of sunshine, joy, and positive emotions! Bags with KENTE pattern give people positive vibes and are adored on streets. They are a symbol of support and solidarity with girls we are helping.
Income coming from selling Kente bags is transfered to Dolly Foundation account for Brain Girl Academy program. It is an educational project led by Rosina Akourkor Teya. The main idea behind this project is to notice girls with highest scores on exams in elementary school. Thanks to scholarships girls can continue education in high schools and after that even on Universities.
