“While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.”
― Chinua Achebe, Anthills of the Savannah
At CHIOMA, our why is driven by our desire to help and support economically challenged regions across the African continent; to empower women in the artisan trade ;and to promote preservation of cultural heritage. We do this in two ways, I DREAM Africa Collective and I DREAM AFRICA Initiative.
I Dream Africa Collective focuses on harnessing marketable resources from the African Continent for the purpose of driving economic growth and development to local African communities. We regularly source and purchase from local African farmers and fair trade suppliers to drive economic growth.
I Dream Africa Initiative makes active charitable contributions to partner NGO’s and promote micro lending to local artisan women to enhance their trade. Percentage of proceeds from our I DREAM AFRICA collection and website sales go to support this endeavor.
