Why should you shop Khutsala?

The Khutsala™ Artisans Affiliate program was designed as a way for people to support Heart for Africa year-round. Read below to learn how you can get involved!
At Heart for Africa and Khutsala Artisans, we interact daily with some incredibly supportive individuals . These friends, both old and new, ant to get involved with our work in Eswatini. With all the chaos going on in the world today, it would be easy (and understandable) to become focused on our own personal struggles and challenges. We, however, don’t have those types of friends. Our friends truly go above and beyond for others, genuinely want to help, and are eager to help when a need arises.
These kinds of friends ROCK and should be celebrated. We are truly grateful and humbled by our “village”.
This is where our new Khutsala™ Artisans Affiliate program comes into play! If you or your friends want to support Heart for Africa or Khutsala Artisans, a great way is through our Affiliate program. In this program, you will sign up for a unique hyperlink that connects to our Khutsala Artisans website. You would then share this link to your network of family and friends through email, text, or social media encouraging them to shop. The products are so beautiful they practically sell themselves. We are just asking our Affiliates to get them to our website! If someone makes a purchase after clicking your link, you will be able to see on your own Affiliate Dashboard! You can then directly track your impact on the organization, because all proceeds go towards caring for orphans and vulnerable children living in Eswatini. We also provide you with all the tools you will need to get people shopping! We have incredible images to share on social media and even examples of wording you can use in your posts!
To sweeten, the deal, we are offering 10% store credit for any sales that come from your link. You can use this credit on anything in our store- think about getting your Christmas shopping done with a few clicks!
If you talk to anyone that works with/for a non-profit, you’ll learn that finding ways for people to not only get involved, but feel like they are making an impact, can be challenging (let alone when there’s a global pandemic). And to be completely transparent with you, this impact is needed more now than ever.
You see, before the pandemic, Project Canaan had over 260 children and received a new child (on average) every 12 days. That’s a lot of mouths to feed! We’re actually feeding even more when you consider the various hunger initiatives going on in the communities across the nation. This outreach is a direct result from the unemployment rate being near 70% across the country. That was PRE-Covid-19, now the circumstances are much more severe.
With many people being laid off and spending more time at home, social workers in Eswatini expect the rate of abandoned babies to significantly increase in 2021. That means in order to continue to do what we are called to do, we are going to need a lot more money to feed these kids. This is where our team has been working so diligently, answering the question, “how do we prepare for this wave of babies in 2021?”
Khutsala Artisans was specifically created to reduce the amount of “asking” Heart for Africa does, because all the profit goes towards caring for orphans and vulnerable children living on Project Canaan. Our team has been working on collaborative ways to sell more Khutsala Artisan products to help alleviate the money needing to be raised by Heart for Africa for all the new babies coming in 2021. This would not only provide for our children, but also provide employment to more people in our community as we need to produce more goods.
The Affiliate program came to be because of people like you, that not only follow Khutsala Artisans, but are even willing to read this blog. If you are interested in getting involved with Heart for Africa, consider joining the Khutsala Artisans Affiliate Program.

I want you to think back for a moment to when you were twelve years old. You were probably in seventh grade, living with a parent (or two), likely getting excited to enter HIGH SCHOOL as a freshman and worried about acne or what clothes to wear to a friend’s birthday party. For most of us, twelve years old was a (relatively) easier year of life.
Unfortunately, this was not the case for Ncamile.
