Description

For little learners who adore learning about the world outside their door, this gift box is a perfect fit! Combining a hard-cover edition of Lillian The Tiriki Girl and a set of Counting Cards and Colour Cards in Swahili, little readers will have a chance to learn more about growing up in Kenya while trying out a bit of the local lingo!

Details 🔍

What's In The Box:

• A hardcover copy of 'Lillian The Tiriki Girl'

• A set of our Counting Cards and Colour Cards in Swahili, perfect for weaving and playing with throughout the story.


Gift Box Options:

To minimise waste, our gift boxes double as mailing boxes. Let us know what your gifting needs are from the following options:

• Wrap The Box: If you're gifting the whole box, we can wrap the box in plain paper. That way, the shipping label comes off with the outside layer and your gift box is ready to go!

• Wrap The Items: If you're not fussy about the box, we can wrap the items inside instead and pop them in our compostable mailer.

• Just As Is: If you're mixing and matching our items with other gifts, we can just send the box with no extra frills and pop in a tote bag as a little bonus!

Origin & Maker 🌍

The author of the book, Lillian, is a Tiriki woman of the Luhya people in Kenya. She’s a dedicated change-maker who works in Nairobi as a family tracer. That means she helps to rehabilitate and reconnect girls who've been separated from their families with a safe place to call home.

The cards are designed by our Co-Founder, Paty Galán, from her home in Northern Territory.

Both the book and card sets are printed locally on Wurundjeri Country (in Melbourne).

Impact 🔥

• A built-in donation (10% of revenue, 50% of profits) to support now-grown-up Lillian's work in Nairobi - helping girls who've been separated from their families find safe places to thrive again.

• A second donation (of 1% revenue, each) to two Aboriginal-owned and led organisations, in acknowledgement that we live and work on stolen lands: Pay The Rent and Children's Ground.

• Two tree planted, to support reforestation projects across Australia
