KET at Benenden School Arts Festival June 2022

KET at Benenden School Arts Festival June 2022

The Trust was delighted to be invited to attend Benenden School Arts Festival. Our attendence had been arranged by the family of one of our Trustees for which we are extremely grateful.  It was a beautiful June day with the sun shining brightly as we arrived to set up the KET stall.


Our stall was filled with beautiful handmade Naga items of clothing, jewellery and bags as well as books on the battle of Kohima.  The visitors to the Arts Festival were generous enough to support us by purchasing some lovely items, and one kind visitor even donated a brand new scholarship which we will award next year. 

We would like to thank Benenden school for their support and for this opportunity to tell more people about our work in Nagaland. We would also like to thank all our friends and supporters, and in particular Sophie and Bella Barclay for their unstinting support, and to all the girls who helped out on the day - what a fantastic event!


To see the full range of items handmade in Naga homes, as well as books about the Battle of Kohima, please visit our online shop.
