The KOKÚMỌ box will arrive at your door each and every month filled with interesting African history, an educational science, technology, engineering, art, and/or math (STEAM) activity, and thoughtful gifts. African History will include people and/or events from Africans - African Americans, in the Americas, on the continent, in Europe - all over the world.
Each box will vary based on the historical figure highlighted for the month. Every box comes complete with a history lesson, a science, technology, engineering, art and/or math (STEAM) activity and at least two memorabilia related to the subject matter. For example, the first KOKÚMỌ box includes a biographical sketch and history lesson about Thomas Sankara, Burkina Faso's first president. There is also an urban planning and sustanability exercise associated with the lesson. The gifts have been handpicked by us and were sourced directly from Burkinabé people. The colorful bracelets were made from recycled plastic bags and the pencil holders come from cotton grown and woven in Burkina Faso.
