Wola Nani means “we embrace and develop one another” in Xhosa. It was established in 1994 as a non-profit organization to help bring relief to the communities hardest hit by the HIV crisis. South Africa has the largest rate of HIV infection in sub-Saharan Africa, and Wola Nani works to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV and AIDS.

Wola Nani’s mission is to care through counseling and testing; ARV (Antiretroviral drug) adherence counseling and support; after school programs for vulnerable children; and income generation opportunities for persons with HIV and AIDS.

These survivor crafters produce recycled papier-mâché bowls, designer light bulbs, beadwork, recycled magazine mirrors, recycled paper jewelry, recycled paper lampshades and tea light candle holders.

Do Good.  Shop Fair.
