T-shirts to raise money for a worthy cause that is!

You may have heard that Elon Musk‘s The Boring Company raised money for its tunneling operation by selling merchandise. It sold 50,000 hats for $20 apiece in 2017. And Tesla is now selling surfboards for the same reason.  Inspired, we too promote language diversity through a small range of funky merchandise.

At Baba Bata, the saying, ‘education is the key to life‘, ‘elimu ni ufunguo wa maisha,’ is a truth we hold dear because being able to read and write – in our own language first – has opened many doors in life.
