Our Story

ILAVA Gives Back

We provide academic, economic, and social resources to women and children in targeted African countries. 

Our vision is to equip the marginalized population in the community with the resources that will allow them to combat extreme poverty. Ending the cycle of extreme poverty from one generation to the next. 


Made With Love

We work with fantastic fabric vendors in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to ensure that our materials come from the continent of Africa. All of our products are handmade, and we avoid over production by creating a limited quantity. We also ensure that our employees are paid above the national standards for a living wage for their high quality work.
