Welcome to Buyamba! We are excited that you are interested in learning more about this new amazing brand. Thank you for your interest in helping others!
Many people ask us, “Why are you spending so much time on this little brand? It’s nice that you’re trying to help but can you really make a difference?”
Our story started about 4 years ago, when from a business stand point we were trying to establish a socially conscious business model. We were looking for something that gave back to those in need. We were inspired by Tom’s footwear, who gave a shoe to those in need for every pair sold. But we hoped to do more. We looked at the Tom’s model, and wondered what happened to that child after about 2-3 months and the shoe wore out.
Our vision grew to be, what difference could be made in a child’s life if we gave their parent a job?
We wanted to give them a hand up and not just a hand out, giving that child the hope of a better future through proper education and nutrition.
We wanted to change lives and be able to look into the eyes of the people we were helping and see that hope come to a realization. We wanted a personal relationship with those in need.
Our message is all about restoring Hope!
Restore. That is such a strong message and description of what happens when you love a child in
need. You indeed restore them, you give them hope, and you instill a sense of purpose.
The same thing happens when you Restore Women. In our culture today and in Africa there are so many women that are abused and displaced. We simply showed them Love. We gave them Hope. We empowered them. We showed them they can make a difference in the lives of their families. Our hope was they would ask “why do you love us?“. …and our reply would be “because we were first loved“
Love changes everything…… Pass it on!
