About the book:

Koti Keniassa (’Home in Kenya’) is full of stories about encounters and life in the village of Makongeni. Each encounter has made Viola understand the world and humanity in a new way. She recounts stories about acceptance, humaneness and how a person may take extreme measures in moments of distress. In the book the lives of the families get intertwined, often in a dramatic way.

Kalevala

Kalevala is more than an ancient fairytale.
It is a cherished Northern lore

about the beginning of humanity.
It is about a world created by a woman.


This is why Kalevala is always more than a piece of jewelry.
It is a shared power. It is original.
It is everlasting.
Like you.
