Carry What You Love.

What is possible.

This video reminds us of all that is possible. This is Argentine, Aline, Neema and Ziada singing with the Northern Lights Spiritus Singers at a holiday concert in their community in Canada. The choir asked Argentine to teach them a song in Swahili, creating this beautiful moment of community and sharing.

The chorus of the song repeats "We say thank you. We say thank you. We say thank you, my God."

We are 5 women.

We met in Congo over 10 years ago, and formed SHONA Congo. Since then, there has been war, refugee camps, motherhood and so much more. Thank you for joining our journey. Together we are SHONA Congo.

"The quality of the sewing and the determination and love of the four seamstresses can not be matched."



I love knowing my purchase goes directly to helping other women take care of their families. I love feeling like I personally know the makers of the bags due to being able to hear their stories, and seeing their pictures and videos of their families. The bags are amazing and I am proud to carry them and share their stories."

"These are now my "go to" bags. I have several different colors and styles of these bags and I cannot pick a favorite. They are so pretty, well made and you can carry them anywhere."
