"Very Cool"

The woven headdress really sets this mask apart from others. The head portion is small so make sure to look at the product dimensions.

I wished for this beautiful mask for a long time, but it was seldom available. It is joy to gather art work from many cultures and feel a connection. I admit the name good woman added to my admiration. I hope I am one. Thank you Abdul.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Abdul has four children of his own and and cares for an additional four. All eight children live with him and he treats them all as his own.

Abdul has a dream of establishing an art academy for carving and sharing the African culture that is so closely tied to wood carving. So far, he has trained over 30 people but hopes that number can grow to be in the hundreds with an academy.

Since he started working with NOVICA, he has been able to grow his business. Through NOVICA and his determination, every day he gets a little closer to his goal of empowering and training others in carving.

Abdul Aziz Mohamadu has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to pay for improvements to his workshop.

Abdul financially supports the education of his own four children and the four other children that live with him.

This Product is awarded the Earth Friendly badge because it uses recycled or sustainable materials or techniques.
