'Toys with big hearts and long tales' is the tagline of this amazing little social enterprise from Zambia. After coming up empty in the search for a decent stuffed toy for her young daughter, Charles Barr started Little Ndaba with the intention of filling that gap, however in doing so, she also wanted to create an environment that provided a sustainable livelihood for rural Zambian women. The result is a beautiful little organization that sees rural women gathering together in two separate community crafting groups to create a selection of the most endearing and lovable little stuffed toys one could ever wish for.
In addition to providing sustainable and meaningful employment, Little Ndaba also creates a number of awesome creatures for select non profit organizations in Zambia, and donates a portion of the proceeds of their sales back to community development, animal welfare and wildlife conservation projects throughout the country.
For more in depth insight into this beautiful little company we are so very proud to represent, please visit their website and take a tour; we promise you won't be disappointed
MisHMasH donates 10% of the sale of almost every Little Ndaba toy back to Game Rangers International (GRI) Elephant Orphan Project in Zambia; a cause very close to our hearts. The only exception is with the Manzi Seapod collection, where the donations are instead donated to Canadian NPO, Sea Legacy.
