This unique santa statue is hand-carved from soapstone and hand-painted by men and women with the Tabaka artisan group in Kenya.

Tabaka saves 15% of their income to help orphans, widows, handicapped, elderly, and HIV/AIDS victims whether or not they are part of the Tabaka cooperative. In this way, the community also benefits as the group continues to look for new and innovative ways to make a positive impact.
