STRONG

To overcome against all of the odds. To draw from the well inside you, and choose to step out and face each challenge with courage and determination.

Take a deeper look

  • Horn

Horn is not ivory. An elephant is killed for its ivory, but horn is a natural byproduct after a cow dies. The horn would usually be discarded, but instead, it is made into a beautiful material.

We purchase 100% of our horn from discarded horns of Ankole cows, which helps stimulate the local Ugandan economy. The horn is cleaned, polished and handcarved in our Akola horn studio by Akola employees in Jinja, Uganda. Horn is a beautiful, sustainable material that is creating jobs for women at Akola and giving them the skills to help build their future. Slight inconsistencies will occur that add to the unique beauty of each piece.

A STORY BY AKOLA

akola-icon-green

My strength comes from the understanding that regardless of where my story started, I have within me what it takes to change it!

I am Tappy Namusobya Namukose 43, married, a mother of four children and a grandmother of one. Fourteen years ago, I had to make a profound decision with my family to start a life in a new community in Nabukosi.This was after my husband lost a job. He was the primary caretaker of the family and my role was to wait until he provided. Life in town became very challenging and unbearable.

 

Transitioning to the village life became very difficult. I desired to find work and support my family but this was impossible because working opportunities were rare and available only to the educated women and men. I discovered that I was more than a dependant partner, but a mother and a wife who can equally contribute towards the welfare of my family. With the support of my husband we started farming in the community to be able to provide for our family, but our earnings could only enable us provide basic necessities.

 

In 2010, Akola gave me an opportunity to work in my community. I was not only presented with a working opportunity but also a chance to uncover my strength and tap into responsibilities that others believed predominantly belonged to a certain category of people. I have worked as a partner with my husband to educate our children, build a house, and I recently completed three rental houses.

 

My strength comes from understanding that regardless where my story started, I have within me what it takes to change it!
