Today, after picking up our volunteer team that arrived from California, we visited the Akamba Handicraft Co-operative Society. Here numerous artisans make hundreds of handcrafts per day that are sent all over Mombasa, as well as, to other parts of Kenya to be sold in craft shops. It was a neat experience to see each artisan focusing in their area of expertise in an assembly line of sorts until they ended up with the finished product.
