Welcome to our global maker-to-market movement where, together with 20,000 artisans, we ignite social change. We create opportunities for individuals, families, and communities in developing countries to thrive through strong relationships, fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable practices.
Artisans of Mujibha Exports treasure their homeland and celebrate it by creating works of art in the likeness of their native birds or beasts. Crafted from natural seed pods and painted by hand, this whimsical little creature is a great gift for anyone who loves animals, travel, culture or color.
HANDCRAFTED IN ZIMBABWE
Mujibha Exports, a privately held company, was founded in 1994 by Robert Barclay Stewart and his mother, Anthea Doreen Stewart, to provide a connection to family, country and the artistic culture that is Zimbabwe, Robbie’s home country. Mujibha Exports currently employs nine staff in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital city and works with over 100 artisans from three main groups. More than half of Zimbabwe’s population is unemployed or underemployed, so the goal of the group is to provide full-time work to as many as possible. Mujibha Exports provides logistical and managerial support to producers. Whenever possible, the organization assists artisans by assuming functions that increase production efficiency, collecting completed orders from stone artisans and managing raw material supply for wood and metal artisans, for example. Additionally, Mujibha provides loans to producers to assist them in obtaining the capital needed to produce an order.
