Our Soma Bags collection

In December 2021, we organized an online Christmas Fair and launched our bag collection in collaboration with Soma Bags, an Tanzanian organisation with a story. Read more about Soma Bags ánd the bags we sell for charity in this blog!


The story

There's a beautiful story behind Soma Bags Tanzania... A few years ago, the Tanzanian entrepreneur James founded the foundation My Little Travelling Library. For this foundation, James brings all kinds of (study) books around on his bike. This way, also children in remote areas have education to stories and new knowledge. In the countryside in Tanzania, however, there is not always electricity. The kids who live there can only read and learn before sunset. But: James came up with something for that too: bags with built-in lights that work on solar energy.

By buying the bags from Soma Bags you not only support our projects in Kahama, but you also support the school kids all over the country! With the profit Soma Bags makes, they can produce more bags with solar panels for the local scholars.



Our Bags

Each item is unique and made of strong Tanzanian cement bags with colorful kitenge fabric on the inside. By buying one of the bags, you support not one but TWO charities!
