Morning Mugs features Michelle Triebold with her story of hope. She has been volunteering and working with programs in Liberia, West Africa since 2011. Through more than a dozen trips there, she has personally seen the devastating effects that the lack of educational opportunities and the inability to earn a living wage has had on families. After meeting many Africans with the desire to make a better life for themselves and their children, she has formed KILI-KE-ZU Global Artisan Partnerships. The retail/online store carries their handmade wares with proceeds benefitting the African artisans and their families.
