THE POTTERS OF AKILIBA

In the rural West Nile area of Northern Uganda, you will find the village of Akiliba, home to our artisan partners who are determined to use pottery as a way to support their entire community. These beautiful creations are handbuilt using locally sourced clay and then stacked into a brush-covered mound for firing.

USING THEIR CRAFT TO CREATE CHANGE

Independence is as critical for these artisans as the preservation of their ancient craft. Naima, one of the village elders passionately summarizes this sentiment – “We want to get out of poverty and be able to feed ourselves and put our children through school.”

CREATING SUSTAINABILTY

In the past, their remote location and lack of transportation left the group struggling with being able to access larger markets in the area. Now, through Obakki’s partnership with the village, we’ve been able to help them travel to these markets, enabling the community to grow a sustainable local source of income.
