Aina Moja open house

BELFAST — Aina Moja has moved to 39 Main St. in the Wellness Health Center. It will be open during the Friday Art Walk on Sept. 2.

Aina Moja seeks artisans who have little or no access to the market, assists them in developing products, then purchases at Fair Trade rates to help support their work and enables them to support themselves and their families. The profits from Aina Moja support the projects of Expanding Opportunities, including a feeding program for street children in Kenya, a boy’s home in Nakuru and a pastoralist girl child rescue project.

Aina Moja means “one of a kind” in Swahili, and each item is handmade and therefore one of a kind.

Among the seven projects of the organization, Camp Forest, a wilderness day and expedition camp in Brooks, ties together the wilderness skills and culture of three continents. There will be a lemonade and a goodies stand at 39 Main St. to support the Campership Fund for Camp Forest.

Beverly Stone will be at the Open House to recount stories of children and artisans in Africa.
