The kibera piggy / Piggy bank

The kibera piggy
The kibera piggy

The Kibera piggy is not just an item for saving money, but also a well-meant reminder of helping others. Kibera is a famous slum in Africa and water is quite scarce there. Therefore, washing hands with clean water is almost impossible. However, when we are travelling we always have lots of coins that we finally cannot spend and bring them home. Kibera Piggy is a free "gift" from the city and the ideation of mine is to accumulate the coins and help the slum, just by giving a bottle of water to them that can use to wash hands . It would bring good things for people who have been forgotten.
