THE PACKAGING ON THIS TEA ALONE IS ENOUGH FOR ME TO BUY THIS GREAT TASTING TEA.
Ajiri Tea was started with the social mission of creating employment for the people of western Kenya and of educating the local orphans. Through the sale of Ajiri Tea, we hope to create a sustainable cycle of community employment and education. Ajiri means "to employ" in Swahili, the national language of Kenya.
The packaging on the box and the twine and beads are all handmade by women in Kisii, Kenya. The proceeds from the tea directly pay for the education, books, and uniforms for girls in the Kisii community in Kenya.
