We filmed a very special episode of Dussault Inc which ventured away from the conflict we usually encounter with Jason and Mashiah and featured instead, a voyage to Cameroon with the Obakki Foundation. It’s the perfect foundation for Mashiah to have become involved with as it is driven by creativity and strives to empower women and children. Volunteers from the organization use art, fashion, thoughts and ideas to engage the people into actively participating in the improvement of their own lives.
After spending time in different villages nurturing art projects, or gathering thoughts, the Obakki Foundation turns completed work into limited edition pieces for sale. All proceeds go directly back to the community for the betterment of all. They have most recently dug many clean water wells in Sudan.
The founder of the Obakki Foundation, Treana Peake, is a good friend of Mashiah’s. When Mashiah went to find out how she could help Treana by becoming more involved, Treana convinced her to accompany them to Cameroon. On this particular voyage they painted children’s hands and also gave women disposable cameras to take photos that would later be collected. It was a very emotional experience for Mashiah and we believe the episode was inspirational in a way to motivate others into action.
