With Love, From Ghana - Shop

Give One, Get One (www.theghanaproject.org)


Help a child at Christ Orphanage receive a schoolbag of their own to carry their school supplies. For every purchase over $30 (before tax and shipping), a schoolbag will be given to a child at Christ Orphanage. As of October 2010, The Ghana Project has already provided 40 children at Christ Orphanage with their very own schoolbags!

All products were created in Hohoe, Ghana by a local seamstress, Beatrice Agabe and her apprentices. As the merchandise is handmade, there are extremely limited quantities available. If you see a design or pattern you would like to purchase that is no longer available or if you have ideas for future products, please email theghanaproject@yahoo.com and we will do our best to fulfill your request.

Please note that many of the fabrics use to create the merchandise are printed using a technique called batik (whereby melted wax is applied to cloth before it is dipped in a dye). As a result, merchandise is likely to bleed when washed. We recommend that you hand wash your merchandise.
