Basaka, which means backpack in Loko, a native language of Sierra Leone, is an organization determined to empower individuals, sustain entrepreneurship, and promote universal education. We are a philanthropic organization dedicated to establishing global relationships and bettering lives. Here’s how it works: when you visit one of our vendors, you have the opportunity to buy a backpack hand-made in Sierra Leone. For every backpack purchased, we donate one backpack filled with school supplies to a student in Sierra Leone. By utilizing hand-made Sierra Leonean backpacks, we can participate in the creation of a sustainable and growable enterprise in Africa.
