Shanga River House is an organization that teaches and supports the local disabled who make beautiful souvenirs ranging from glass jewelery [great way to recycle] to fabric products like elephant pillows and bags.They also partner with other local designers/ organizations that help the local community and wildlife. Shanga is simply amazing. People with disabilities, some who might otherwise be tossed away or ignored by society, are empowered through art, and they make some beautiful things on-site using recycled materials.
Following a sumptuous hot lunch Arusha Coffee Lodge, you then have an opportunity to see the Shanga Workshop where disabled Tanzanians create some spectacular arts and crafts. These items are also available for sale at the shop located on site.
