Kumbo Arts Exhibition

Kumbo, the home of the HI Cameroon community center, recently hosted a regional arts fair featuring the work of many artists intimately connected with the Himalayan Institute’s humanitarian projects.  The event was a perfect opportunity for craftspeople working with HI Cameroon’s School of Carpentry and Construction and students of our Sacred Link Jewelry program to display the beautiful fruits of their labor.

The show piece in the HI Cameroon booth was a desk, whose style and high quality are unique for the area, made in the School of Carpentry and Construction.

The excellent handiwork of artists in Cameroon is gaining a wider appreciation in the African region and throughout the world. The Himalayan Institute’s Humanitarian TrAid initiative helps artists like those at Kumbo’s art show earn a fair wage for their work in the global marketplace.

Intricate wood carving is one of Kumbo's trademark art forms.

Inquire at any of HI’s branch centers worldwide to learn how you can purchase art from Cameroon, India and Mexico to support our humanitarian initiatives.
