LIV / KANGAMAMA / Weaverbird
Welcome to our dynamic trio of businesses where making a difference makes all the difference!
Daniel Skaftouros (the Skaf man from Down Under) owns Weaverbird Design & Marketing agency, the agency that cares about people and brands.
Ashlé (the Skaf woman from ZA) is the birth mother of Kangamama - African centered products. From organic skincare to natural fibre knitwear, crafted by the hands of African women, this is the heartbeat of this corner.
LIV Village, the village on the hill that cares for almost 200 rescued children, is the third member of this party. Their proudly African items are hand made by community ladies of Cottonlands. Daniel and Ashlé (aka The Skafs) are long term volunteers at LIV Village, along with their 2 children, Isaac and Isabella.
The shared vision of loving God and loving those around us, has brought these 3 businesses together to The Litchi Orchard. No matter who you purchase from, you are intentionally part of the positive impact the purchase makes.
Monday - Sunday: 8am-5pm.
