Our best seller is the Courage Kimono: made of vibrant kikoi fabric found in Tanzania. Fun for all seasons - perfect for layering or wearing as a swimsuit cover up! Our one size fit makes this a great gift.
Opened in 2011, Courage House is a long-term rehabilitation program for minor victims of sex trafficking in Moshi, Tanzania. Ten years ago, Courage House Tanzania opened to 10 girls and 2 babies. As of December 2020, 36 girls and 8 of their children call Courage House and Courage House Too home!
The foundation of Courage House is to:
Rescue the most vulnerable: young girls trapped in sexual slavery and exploitation.
Restore the girls’ physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through education, around-the-clock care, trauma-informed counseling, music & sports, and much more.
Rehabilitate each girl through their specially-designed Unique Life Plan and further education, vocational training and life skills.
Courage House Too is a transitional program for former members of Courage House, ages 18+.
This program allows them to gain leadership and vocational training skills (sewing, jewelry making, and cookery), develop their English and computer skills, and make the transition to adult life with a solid foundation.
We support these girls through their college/university education or vocational training program so they can follow their dreams, and ensure they won’t be trapped in the life of sexual exploitation ever again.
At Courage House Too, we have future lawyers, social workers, journalists, tailors, business women, hospitality workers, hair stylists and teachers (just to name a few)!
Almost two years ago, we had ten Courage House Tanzania girls off to college, university and vocational training but no funds.
Brainstorming ways to raise money for their education, the girls began to create handmade products to sell to small volunteer teams. These products were immediately a hit!
This is how Courage Products was born: imparting meaningful skills & hard work to the Courage girls, while raising money for their further education!
My life at CLA is good because I see God working in this place. Here at CLA I have learned many skills like sewing kimonos and making jewelry which help me and my fellow sisters to get university fees, through selling these products to the different supporters of Courage. For that, I am so grateful and excited to be studying at university. I believe that I will be able to achieve my dreams. Thank you to all supporters of Courage who supported me in changing my life. God bless you for every single thing you have done for me and my fellow sisters here at CLA. I love you!
