Use your creativity to contribute to self-determination and economic development by and for the African community! We're a perfect fit for painters, artists, visual art students, and interior designers looking to build their portfolio while supporting a great cause.

Volunteers will paint donated furniture, home decor, and home goods to be a part of our new furniture and accessories line: NZO - African Styles at Home and Abroad! The art will feature African-inspired prints and designs,

We will provide the eco-friendly paints (zero VOC), brushes, stencils, pieces to be painted, and all other materials you need.

Fresh inventory arrives every few hours, so new pieces are always available! We are open to new ideas that will enhance the projects. This is a great way to get community service hours while having some creative, artistic fun!
