Based in the town of Arusha, near Kilimanajro, Shanga is a socially conscious for-profit enterprise that showcases hand-made jewellery, home and lifestyle pieces. Employing only disabled Tanzanians within the local community, Shanga aims to provide safe and supportive employment to these individuals, to help support them and their families, while also allowing them to showcase their creative talents.
Recently re-locating to a new home at Arusha Coffee Lodge, guests with a few hours to spend in the town can enjoy a tour of the Shanga workshop and boutique, where all of the uniquely designed pieces are available to view. Each item produced by Shanga is crafted from recycled materials, helping to protect the environment and enhance awareness of sustainability in the local community.
Throughout the Lodge, Four Seasons is proud to showcase products from Shanga, as one of many local social enterprises supported. To view further details, visit shanga.org.More posts from March 2016
