The purchase of Bangura products contributes to employment in Sierra Leone and provides financial assistance to the local Masanga hospital. Bangura bags also carry the Danish Fair Trade stamp, ensuring high standards regarding transparency, salaries, education and working conditions. If that is not enough, the Tailor Shop provides employees with education in basic english and math.

Alfred Bangura manages The Tailor Shop where all of these items are manufactured on pedal powered sewing machines.
