We recently came upon this interesting and ‘unique’ campaign via a crowdfunding site and decided to follow it. We’ll follow his campaign over the coming weeks to see if his dream will come true. The Lamu-styled traditional dhow is known as a “Kasa.” I choose this one as it is somewhat small and can be made from locally assembled materials. Mohamed is crowdfunding on Indiegogo at https://igg.me/at/dhowdream to help raise the funds to make his dream come true. Tell us what you think about this crowdfunding dream in the comments below.
