    I found your info on the kiva site as I was searching for sourcing on kangas. Our non-profit is doing work in East Africa, mainly Ethiopia, Kenya and Burundi and we are looking to source African made kangas for our sewing co-ops. Was wondering if your group (Tujijenge Tanzania, Ltd.) that is represented by Kiva sources their own kangas or if they’re purchased at the local market. If they are made within Africa and have a reliable source, I’d be interested in discussing more how we could connect our two groups so they could have a more consistent supply of kangas. We love what you’re doing!

    Sincerely,
    Sophia Lin
