Meet Maplanga!
He's an artist and newest entrepreneur on the Day by De team! Maplanga lives on the outskirts of Lusaka, where he creates works of art to sell in his home-made studio. Like many artists, Maplanga struggles to make a living... so we've started a partnership to help him!

By purchasing Maplanga's artwork, you are helping him and his family thrive in his community. Each piece is beautifully unique and serves as a perfect gift for any celebration. By supporting Maplanga, you are also contributing to the Day by De Foundation, whose mission is to invest in forward-thinkers and entrepreneurs in rural Zambia in order to create sustainable change.

Other sculptures to check out: lions, elephants, warthogs, and crocodiles
